Watch this video clip from nfl.com. Apparently the Vikes have had illegal contact with Favre.
STEVE ADDS: Here is more from Don Walker at JS Online. An excerpt:
The source added that the Packers feel the case against the Vikings is strong.
Allegations of tampering are touchy subjects among professional sports franchises and the penalties can include the loss of draft choices and/or fines.
The fact that the alleged contact involved Favre, who is in a bitter dispute with the Packers, who still hold his rights, makes the case particularly sensitive. Additionally, the fact that the case involves the Vikings, a big rival in the NFC North, is sure to fuel animosity between the two franchises.
Jay Glazer, who broke the story (shock!), reports:
The Vikings were informed late last week that the allegation is that Favre has had inappropriate dialogue with Minnesota offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, a close Favre friend and former assistant coach with the Packers. Favre has sought his release from Green Bay and several rumors have swirled that Minnesota is his targeted landing place, largely due to his relationship with Bevell.
League sources say the Vikings vehemently denied any wrongdoing and are awaiting the league’s next step in the process. The Packers, meanwhile, have supplied the league with their version of wrongdoing.
