An independent massage therapist formerly employed by the Minnesota Vikings has accused quarterback Brett Favre of sending her suggestive text messages last September, and says she received unwelcome and lewd advances from other Vikings, according to a report that appeared on the website Deadspin on Tuesday.

Staphanie Dusenberry, who worked for the Vikings in 2006 and 2007 before starting her own business, said Favre sent her several text messages in September asking for a private meeting, according to Deadspin. In one of the text messages, Dusenberry claims Favre said, "You don't know what it's like to not be touched by a woman for three weeks."

When she told Favre his messages were making her uncomfortable, Favre allegedly said, "It's not like that."

The Deadspin report says the masseuse shared the information after the NFL handed down what she thought was a light punishment over Jenn Sterger's allegations this fall that Favre sent her suggestive voicemails and naked photos when he played for the New York Jets. Favre was fined $50,000 by the NFL for his "lack of cooperation" in the league's investigation of his communication with Sterger, a former Jets employee.

Dusenberry told Deadspin that she maintained good relationships with several players, including some whom she worked with this past season. But she also says she received unwelcome advances from some players on the current roster and some no longer with the team, including defensive back Dwight Smith, wide receiver Aundrae Allison and backup running back Albert Young, according to Deadspin.

She claims that Young sent her a naked photo of himself via a text message.

The Deadspin report said the Vikings declined to comment on the matter.
