|Sterger Lawyer Says Favre Investigation Complete
|EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- The lawyer for the former Jets game hostess who allegedly received inappropriate phone messages and photos from Brett Favre says the NFL's investigation into the matter is complete.
Attorney Joseph Conway said Wednesday that he received a call from an NFL official who told him the case has been wrapped up and sent to Commissioner Roger Goodell and the league's lawyers for review.
Conway is the lawyer for Jenn Sterger, who allegedly received the inappropriate messages and photos two years ago when she and the quarterback both worked for the Jets. Conway says he has been told of no timetable for an announcement.
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said "we're not ruling out this week. We're not ruling out next week," when asked when a decision might be announced. The Sports Business Journal first reported the development.
Favre played for New York in 2008 and has been with the Vikings since last season.
