Jenn Sterger meets with NFL officials
The woman who allegedly received lewd photos and inappropriate text messages from Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre met with NFL investigators for three hours Thursday at an undisclosed location in New York City.
Jenn Sterger, a former New York Jets sideline hostess, allegedly received the messages from Favre when he was a member of the team in 2008.
Phil Reese, Sterger's agent, told The Associated Press in an e-mail that Sterger met with league officials and "we cooperated fully by providing them with substantial materials in our possession. We now await the NFL's decision."
In recent weeks, the NFL had three separate meetings set up with Sterger. All were canceled shortly before they were scheduled to happen.
"We're going to stand back and see what the NFL does," said Joe Conway, Sterger's lawyer. "I have no idea what they do next. That's the question for them."
Lacking evidence or a personal account such as Sterger's, the league had come close to shelving the case.
Favre met with NFL vice president for security Milt Ahlerich on Oct. 19 about the matter. Favre has called the investigation "a league issue."
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello says the league will not comment.
Favre could face possible disciplinary action under the league's personal conduct policy.
The allegations arose last month in a report on the website Deadspin.
The site said Sterger wouldn't agree to an interview and acknowledged that it paid a third party for the texts, voicemails and graphic photos, said to be of Favre, that it posted in a video.
Sterger appeared on a Versus TV network show until recently, but it was canceled due to low ratings.
A three-time MVP, Favre has had a rough 20th season in the NFL. He is dealing with two ankle fractures and elbow tendinitis, and took 10 stitches in his chin after getting hit against New England on Oct. 31. The Vikings are 3-5 heading into Sunday's game at Chicago.
