Brett Favre, Jenn Sterger representatives differ over whether settlment was discussed

By Cindy Boren

Now that Brad Childress is out of the way, the focus can return to Brett Favre ... and that little matter of whether he sent inappropriate texts to Jenn Sterger when both were employed by the New York Jets.

Her agent says his rep asked about settling the matter with her. His rep disagrees.

Phil Reese, Sterger's manager, said Tuesday that Bus Cook, Favre's agent, had asked about ending the issue with a financial settlement. Reese told the Associated Press that he had called Cook last month to tell him that Deadspin was going to report that Favre had left inappropriate voice messages and sent lewd photos to Sterger. (Favre has since admitted leaving the voice messages and the NFL investigation is still open.)

"I was concerned because I didn't know exactly what was going to be coming out, and I knew that it wasn't going to be good for everyone involved," Reese said. "He asked me if there was a specific figure in mind that could make this go away. I told him, 'I wish it were that easy, but there's no putting the toothpaste back in the tube.' "

Cook denied that in a statement to the AP.

"Her manager and her lawyer have made numerous overtures to me ... at least 6 between the two of them," Cook wrote in an email. "Anyone can figure out why. The point is we were never going to pay them, we didn't pay them and we will never pay them. Because, there is NO reason to pay them! They should consider that their attempts to negotiate privately and through the media have failed."

Maybe Dan Snyder should hire Jenn Sterger to handle the coin toss this week?

I get most of my sports news from espn, and I guess I missed something. It was my understanding that this woman was a massage therapist with the team. I wondered why a therapist would need a manager. It seems to me when you distribute pictures like the ones I see, you're not selling your professional ability, unless it's the oldest profession. Of course, I'm 71, so what do I know?

Carolanne2 - your comment is just simply precious!

I am probably too old to be following this story, but Ms. Sterger is going to find her job prospects less than desired as a result of this so-called investigation.

Ms. Sterger has bared all for Playboy and the world to see, and we are not aware of all of the details of her pursuit of Brett Favre.

As much as she said that being with a 40 year old was "creepy," she didn't hesitate to bare all in front of an 80 year old Hugh Hefner a few years back.

So, what's creepy?
