Brett Favre really enjoyed his one season in New York.

The NFL legend, who delivered his annual retirement speech Monday, is being sued by massage therapists Christina Scavo and Shannon O’Toole, who worked for the New York Jets in 2008. The franchise is also named in the lawsuit.

This is unrelated to the $50,000 fine Brett received from the NFL last week in conjunction with the Jenn Sterger sexting / wang photo scandal.

Maybe Brett can un-retire to pay for his legal fees.

Scavo alleges that Favre sent lewd texts to her and treated her like a “hanging slab of meat” back in 2008, and that he proposed a three-way with her and another massage therapist, writing a text to the other woman about it no less.

“Brett here, you and Crissy want to get together, I’m all alone,” he sexted, allegedly.

Scavo claims that when she rejected the advances of the quarterback, her husband, Joseph Scavo, called him personally to demand an apology.

Joseph Scavo said his wife then came under fire from her boss, Lisa Ripi, who hired the two women and who is also a defendant in the lawsuit.

According to the suit, Scavo and Shannon O’Toole, who accuses Favre of similar behavior, were never offered work with the Jets again after that.

Scavo and O’Toole’s attorney, Elizabeth Eilender, said her clients did not want to file a lawsuit, but felt they had no choice given their lost work.

Representatives for Favre, whose legacy is taking quite a hit, were not available for comment. The NFL and the Jets had no comment either.
