FavreWatch: What's the money situation?
By Kevin Seifert
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Here's one (of many) questions I don't yet know the answer to: Did Brett Favre get any extra money as part of his apparent return to the Minnesota Vikings?
As you might recall, the Vikings reportedly offered Favre an extra $3 million when his annual wavering became public last month. Under the terms of that offer, he would receive $16 million for his base salary along with up to $4 million more in incentives.
The offer was definitely made. It will be interesting to see if Favre accepted it, or if money truly was no part of his decision-making process.
