Favre to be interviewed as 'part of review process'

Posted by: under Vikings, Vikings players, Brett Favre, Vikings quarterbacks Updated: October 16, 2010 - 2:59 PM

Brett Favre will be interviewed by the NFL to discuss the allegations the Vikings quarterback sent  sent inappropriate pictures and messages to former Jets sideline reporter Jenn Sterger when he played for the team in 2008.

No date has been set up for the meeting, according to NFL spokesman Greg Aiello. Aiello, in an e-mail on Saturday afternoon, said the league's investigation is "ongoing" and that Favre "will be interviewed as part of the review process." NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is expected to conduct the interview.

Goodell told NBC's "Today Show" on Friday that, "we're gathering all the facts," and that the league wanted, "to make sure that we understand exactly what happened."

Favre could be subject to either a fine or suspension under the league's Personal Conduct Policy. "We want to make sure that we understand exactly what happened," Goodell said on NBC. "We also want to make sure that everybody in the NFL, whether you're a player, coach, commissioner, recognize the responsibility that we all have to the public, to the people who follow our game."

It's unclear if Sterger is cooperating with the investigation and if she doesn't that might make it difficult to suspend Favre. Her manager, Phil Reese, issued a statement last week that read, "we're looking at all our options right now and our only concern is what's in Jen's best interest."

The website Deadspin broke the original story about Favre and Sterger and has since reported that Favre pursued two female massage therapists who worked part time for the franchise. A Jets spokemsan reporedly said the team would give contact information for the two women to the NFL. Neither was identified by Deadspin.
