NFL boss: Favre, league official to meet next week

NFL boss: Favre, league official to meet next week

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says a league official will meet with Brett Favre next week as part of an investigation into allegations the quarterback sent racy text messages and lewd photos to a New York Jets game hostess in 2008.
Goodell said on Saturday that someone "from our staff" would meet with the Minnesota Vikings quarterback and three-time league MVP.
The NFL Network later said the meeting would be on Tuesday in Minnesota with a member of the league's security team. An NFL spokesman declined further comment.
Goodell said this week he had no plans to meet with Favre himself, but added that it's something that he would do if it was warranted.
Favre has been listed as questionable by Minnesota for Sunday's game against Dallas with tendinitis in his right elbow. He has started a record 289 straight games.
The NFL Network also said the league had not yet met with Jenn Sterger, the woman who allegedly received the messages and photos from Favre when he played for New York. Her manager declined comment.
Last week, the Deadspin website posted a video that contained the messages and voicemails, along with several below-the-waist photos _ said to be of Favre _ that were allegedly sent to Sterger's cell phone. Sterger, now a TV personality for the Versus network, did not grant an interview to Deadspin for the report. The website said it bought the material from a third party it did not identify.
Deadspin also reported that Favre pursued two female massage therapists who worked part-time for the Jets. The website didn't identify the women, however the Jets have said they gave contact information about them to the league.
Depending on what the league's investigation finds, Favre could be fined or suspended under the NFL's personal conduct policy.
