Favre willing to meet with Goodell over alleged texts to Sterger

Brett Favre said Sunday he's willing to meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell about allegations that he acted inappropriately toward female employees of the Jets during the 2008 season.

Favre said he'd meet with Goodell during an ESPN production meeting in advance of tonight's game against the Jets. While not directly addressing reports of his inappropriate behavior, Favre said, "That will take its course."

The website Deadspin.com reported last Thursday that Favre allegedly sent inappropriate messages and photos to former Jets game day host Jenn Sterger. The NFL acknowledged that it was looking into the matter. Deadspin.com reported Friday that Favre made unwanted advances at two massage therapists employed by the Jets. 

Goodell said yesterday during an interview with reporters at the Raiders-Chargers game that the league is looking into the case. He gave no timetable about when a decision might be reached about the matter. If Goodell finds that Favre violated the league's personal conduct policy, he could suspend the Vikings quarterback.
