Packers Accuse Vikings of Tampering

Monday, July 21, 2008

The Green Bay Packers have alleged to the NFL that the Minnesota Vikings inappropriately contacted retired quarterback Brett Favre. The allegations come after Favre said he wants to come out of retirement and play for the Vikings.

The Vikings addressed the allegation by saying they "are not commenting on the issue. These types of matters are handled by the league." Favre has asked the Packers to release him from his contract. A friend of Favre's is a Vikings offensive coach.

The NFL also declined to comment on the matter.
