Noticeably absent during the whole Brett Favre telenovela has been Fox Sports' NFL dirt dog, Jay Glazer. The reporter and MMA tough guy broke so many stories last year (including Favre's retirement announcement) that it seemed odd he wasn't pumping out new Favre revelations, even as Chris Mortensen, Peter King, and Greta Van Susterface entrenched themselves in the malcontent gunslinger's head.
Finally, Glazer peeled himself off the jiu-jitsu mat and comes through with this scoop — the Packers have filed tampering charges against the Vikings.
The allegation stems from Favre's supposed "inappropriate" dialogue with Vikings' offensive coordinator Darren Bevell, who's also Favre's buddy and a former Packers' coordinator, before this whole mess happened. There have been no confirmations from the league about this filing and the Vikings deny any wrongdoing.
If the Vikes are found guilty, they'll possibly lose draft picks and get slapped with fines — and probably back off their supposed pursuit of Brett Favre.
