Sterger Rep Says No Lawsuit If NFL Punishes Favre
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — A spokesman for the former New York Jets game hostess who allegedly received inappropriate photos and phone messages from Brett Favre says she won’t sue the Vikings quarterback if he’s punished by the NFL.
Jenn Sterger’s manager, Phil Reese, said Thursday that his client would like the league to “implement a program” to prevent unwanted advances — similar to those she’s alleging Favre made.
The alleged messages from Favre to Sterger were sent in 2008, the QB’s only season with the Jets.
Reese said Sterger wants the league to discipline Favre before his career ends. “It’s not a money story,” Reese said, adding his client’s goal is some acknowledgment that Favre was in the wrong.
Sterger’s attorney has said the NFL has concluded its investigation and sent the findings to the commissioner’s office and league lawyers for review. The NFL is not commenting on the status of the investigation.
Favre has said this season will be his last. There are four regular-season games remaining. The Vikings (5-7) host the New York Giants this weekend, with Favre’s status uncertain because of a sprained throwing shoulder. He has started 297 straight games, an all-time record.
Reese first commented on the possibility of a lawsuit on “The Dan Patrick Show,” nationally syndicated radio program.
