Brett Favre Reportedly Apologizes to Vikings for Scandal Distraction
The quarterback met with the team at their hotel in New Jersey, where they are preparing for a Monday night game against the Jets, and reportedly told the squad that he will play "lights out tonight."
A report from Deadspin that Favre sent nude pictures to Sterger, then a game hostess with the Jets when Favre was the quarterback, has quickly gained steam. Favre originally wouldn't comment on the allegations, but the NFL decided to investigate anyway. Sterger reportedly will fully cooperate with the investigation. The NFL decided to widen the investigation after a report that Favre had allegedly sent lewd texts to two of the Jets' massage therapists as well.
Sterger's management released a statement Monday regarding her decision to hire counsel or not.
"We're looking at all our options right now and our only concern is what's in Jenn's best interest," Phil Reese said. Reese also reinforced that Sterger didn't supply Deadspin with any of the evidence; the site itself admits it got the evidence through a third party.
Favre reportedly wouldn't comment directly on the allegations at a production meeting for Monday Night Football, but would have "no problem with talking to the commissioner" about it. Pending the results of the investigation, he could possibly face a suspension.
