Jets add one more distraction with Favre
By James Walker
Before the Tim Tebow distraction in New York, there was the Brett Favre distraction.
This offseason, the New York Jets have to deal with both.
The Jets still have residue from the Favre fallout. According to the Associated Press, two female massage therapists claim they were subjected to sexual harassment and job discrimination. They claim Favre sent raunchy and unwanted text messages during the 2008 season and are reportedly seeking damages from Favre, the Jets and a team massage coordinator.
The case is going to trial and Favre reportedly has to testify in court. The Jets say the charges are baseless.
With a potential quarterback controversy looming and in-house chemistry issues to address, the Jets have enough distractions this offseason. This is another thing that adds to the Jets' plate.
