Football fans might be getting a little more insight as to how Brett Favre was able to deal with all the pain he must have felt from various injuries over the years. He probably just got a little ‘pain killer' from one of his relatives.

The nephew of the former Green Bay Packers great, Dylan Favre, was arrested shortly after midnight (so officially 4/20) after getting pulled over for a broken light. When police searched his car they found enough marijuana to charge him with intent to distribute.

Dylan was the back-up QB at Mississippi State last season, but was in the process of transferring to Pearl River Community College. He was a heck of a quarterback in high school; a regular gun slinger, just like his famous uncle. During his senior season he destroyed the record books by throwing for just under 5600 yards and 63 touchdowns to go with another 18 scores on the ground.

This isn't the first time that Brett Favre has had a relative arrested for drug possession. In 2011 his sister was busted when police raided a meth lab. It's a good thing they have a famous relative that can help them cover the legal bills.
