Packers claim Vikings tampered with Favre, report
LOS ANGELES (AFP) — The Green Bay Packers have filed tampering charges against the Minnesota Vikings with the National Football League, according to a report by FoxSports.com.
The Vikings were informed last week that the Packers allege Brett Favre has had inappropriate conversations with Minnesota offensive co-ordinator Darrell Bevell, a close friend of the quarterback and former assistant coach with the Packers, according to the Wednesday report.
While the Vikings deny any wrongdoing, the Packers have supplied their version to the league.
Should Minnesota be found guilty of tampering, it could lose draft picks, face fines or both.
According to the report, a source says the NFL currently is gathering information.
