Brett Favre reached a settlement in a lawsuit filed by two massage therapists who alleged that the quarterback sent racy text messages during his one season with the New York Jets, according to reports on Friday.

Christina Scavo and Shannon O’Toole claimed Favre sent the texts to another therapist and that they lost their part-time jobs with the Jets in 2008 for blowing the whistle on him.

Terms of the settlement were not revealed. The Jets and another employee also were named in the suit.

Favre denied the allegations but failed in his attempts last year to have the case dismissed.

After leaving the Jets, Favre went on to play two more years with the Minnesota Vikings until retiring after the 2010 season.
