Favre to Be Fined for Sending Text Messages, FoxSports.com Says

Commissioner Roger Goodell is expected to fine Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre for sending suggestive text messages in 2008 to a female New York Jets employee, without suspending the three-time National Football League most valuable player, FoxSports.com reported.

Goodell is expected to announce a decision in the league’s review of the situation today or tomorrow, the website said without citing a source for its information.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello didn’t immediately return an e-mail seeking comment.

The case involves Favre and Jenn Sterger, who was a sideline television hostess for the Jets when the quarterback played for the team in 2008.
