NEW YORK | Brett Favre has apologized to the Minnesota Vikings for the distraction caused by an NFL investigation into allegations that he sent racy messages and lewd photos to a Jets game hostess in 2008.

A person with knowledge of the situation says Favre spoke to the team on Monday while they were preparing to play the New York Jets. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk publicly about the conversation.

ESPN first reported on Favre’s apology.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says the league is still looking to “find out all the facts” regarding the allegations. He says that “once we determine those facts, then we’ll determine what the next step is from there, if any.” Goodell spoke Monday in Chicago, where he is attending league meetings.

Favre played for the Jets in the 2008 season, before moving to the Vikings last year.
