Brett Favre -- Once the golden child of the Green Bay Packers, Favre made headlines in 2010 for allegedly sending racy texts and photos to ex-New York Jets sidelines reporter Jenn Sterger. He was later sued for sexual harassment stemming from conduct toward at least two women who worked for the Jets in 2008.
