The water Brett Favre is in seems to just keep getting hotter.
We talked earlier about the New York Jets willingness to cooperate with the NFL’s investigation into alleged (seriously, people, the keyword here is indeed “alleged”) behavior that would implicate him under league rules on personal conduct.
The Jets have already provided the NFL with the contact information of two message therapists, working for the team when Favre was the quarterback of the Jets, who are thought to be the targets of unwanted and unsolicited sexual advances from Favre via text messages and cell phone pictures.
Now it has been learned that Jenn Sterger, another person who is supposed to have been in receipt of inappropriate texts and photos from Favre, is also going to be a willing participant in the NFL’s investigation.
As of yet, neither Sterger or the two message therapists have gone public with their claims. The allegations have been pushed forward by deadspin.com and they say that their supposed evidence has all been received via a third party.
Whether this proves to be a distraction to the Vikings at an inopportune time is yet to be seen. Any official discipline as a result of the investigation would likely not be handed down until the 2010 season is completed.
Peter King of SI.com and NBC Sports reports that Sterger will not pursue harassment charges on Favre.
