Vikings Cleared in Tampering Case

GREEN BAY, Wis.--The league has completed its investigation of the tampering charge against the Minnesota Vikings by the Green Bay Packers in the Brett Favre case and has decided that the Vikings won't be punished.

The Packers had accused the Vikings of improper contact with Favre, who's under contract to Green Bay and rejoined the team Sunday after retiring in March.

The contact reportedly came in the form of phone calls between Favre and Vikings coaches, including head coach Brad Childress and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. Favre publicly acknowledged speaking to both men but said they were personal conversations and the Vikings didn't attempt to lure him to play for them.
