Jenn Sterger's lawyer expects meeting
By Adam Schefter
An attorney for Jenn Sterger said Saturday he expects his client to meet with the NFL next week about the league's investigation into the Brett Favre matter.
Sterger is the former New York Jets sideline hostess who allegedly received inappropriate text messages and lewd photos from Favre in 2008 when he was with the team.
Lacking evidence or a personal account such as Sterger's, the league has come close to shelving the case. But
now it appears Sterger will give her testimony to the NFL.
"There is a very strong likelihood that Ms. Sterger will agree to meet with the NFL in their ongoing investigation," Joe Conway said Saturday. "I expect that such a meeting will take place late next week at an undisclosed location."
The Vikings quarterback met with NFL vice president for security Milt Ahlerich on Oct. 19 about the matter. Favre has called the investigation "a league issue."
On the field, Favre is also dealing with two ankle fractures that could keep him out of Sunday's game against the Patriots.
