You might dislike Favre for a lot of things, but Favre was old school and tough tough quarterback.
I am sure Vilma wasn’t the first player to offer cash to take out the old gunslinger, but many failed over his two decades in the NFL.
The most alarming finding by the league, according to one club source who was briefed on the investigation late Friday afternoon, was this: Before the 2009 NFC Championship Game, Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma offered any defensive teammate $10,000 in cash to knock then-Vikings quarterback Brett Favre out of the game. Favre was hit viciously several times in the game. Favre told SI.com Friday evening: “I’m not pissed. It’s football. I don’t think anything less of those guys.”
