Jenn Sterger's Rep: We Handed Over More Evidence to NFL
Phil Reese, the agent for the TV personality, refused to describe exactly what that evidence included, but said it was on top of "the overwhelming amount" given to NFL investigators at a meeting in New York on Nov. 11. Reese said there's only one determination that can be made from information handed over: Favre was the source of inappropriate pictures and voice mails sent to Sterger when both were employees of the Jets two seasons ago.
"We are hoping the NFL does the right thing," Reese said. "If they choose to penalize him, she feels her name has been cleared and she's been vindicated."
SI.com reported Monday that Favre wouldn't be suspended -- and might not be sanctioned at all -- for the allegations first reported by Deadspin.com in October.
"It is (a) complex situation that has involved a great deal of due diligence," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said in an e-mail. "We are trying to wrap it up as soon as possible and will notify everyone appropriately when a conclusion is reached."
Reese said there's plenty to link Favre to the images and voice mails. As far as what type of penalty his client would like to see doled out, Reese wasn't specific.
"How do you fine a guy who makes a million dollars a game?" Reese asked rhetorically.
But with only four games left in the regular season and the fact Favre announced he wasn't going to return in 2011, time's running out for a suspension. The NFL is expected to conclude the investigation by the end of this month.
Reiterating a TMZ.com report, Reese said releasing material that has not already been leaked also remains an option.
