Brett Favre's junk was worth $12,000 [VIDEO]

A worthwhile investment?

A worthwhile investment?

We've long known that Deadspin paid an anonymous source for the cock shots and sexts it said Brett Favre sent to Jenn Sterger, just like it pays for other news. But until today we didn't know how much Favre's junk was worth.

Now we do.


Deadspin is part of the Gawker Media hive. And in a swagger-filled interview about the ethics of writing checks for scoops, Gawker Media founder Nick Denton boasted, "$12,000 for the Favre story. That was an incredible investment."

Maybe he's got a point. In August, the Vikings invested $16 million for the rest of Favre and his extremities, and look what it got them: A losing record and a gimp who's now the focus of an NFL investigation.
