Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre was fined $50,000 by the National Football League for failing to cooperate with an investigation into whether he sent sexually explicit messages to women, the league said Wednesday.
However, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, based on the evidence available, "could not conclude that Favre violated league policies relating to workplace conduct," the league said.
Favre was alleged to have sent inappropriate messages to Jenn Sterger, a female employee of the New York Jets while he was on the Jets roster in 2008.
"The forensic analysis could not establish that Favre sent the objectionable photographs to Sterger," the league's statement said.
It also said Sterger had not engaged in any inappropriate activity.See CNN's full coverage of the NFL's decision
