The Facts: As the days roll by, the Favre saga seems to get stranger and stranger. Now the soap opera has shifted to a new level. In the latest twist, the Packers have filed tampering charges with the league office against the Minnesota Vikings for alleged communication with Favre, still technically a member of Green Bay, FOXSports.com has learned. The league, according to a source, is currently in information-gathering mode, speaking to members of both teams.
Diehards Line:According to FOXSports.com insider Jay Glazer, the Vikings were informed late last week that the allegation is that Favre has had inappropriate dialogue with Minnesota OC 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 tell Glazer 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. Should the league find the Vikings guilty of tampering, they could lose draft picks and/or face fines.
