Brett Favre Scandal: NFL Using Electronic Forensics to Track Photos, Says Report

Gawker sports blog Deadspin is reporting that they have received what they consider to be audio and photographic proof that Vikings Quarterback Brett Favre sent naked pictures to Jenn Sterger, a sports reporter who was employed by the New York Jets when Favre played there. The allegations first surfaced in a Deadspin post in August.

NEW YORK (CBS) NFL investigators are tracking the electronic footprint of the racy photos and voice mails reportedly sent to New York Jets reporter Jenn Sterger to see if they lead to Brett Favre's cell phone, according to a report.

ESPN is reporting that the NFL is attempting to trace the paths of any photos or messages transmitted between Favre and Sterger according to a source.

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre has reportedly fessed up to the NFL to sending racy voice mails to sportscaster Jenn Sterger in 2008 - but denies sending graphic photos.

Last month, Gawker sports blog DeadSpin reported that Favre invited the sideline reporter to his hotel via those voicemails when both were with the New York Jets.

"I'm going back to the hotel and just, just chill...Love to have you come over tonight," one voicemail said.

Deadspin also reported that lewd x-rated photos were sent to Sterger from the same phone as the voicemails.
