Brett Favre may have retired yet again, but he might want to get out of Dodge: The former quarterback has been hit with two sex harassment suits, both by former Jets' massage therapists who aren't named Jenn Sterger. Christina Scavo and Shannon O'Toole both allege that Favre came onto them, reports ABC in an exclusive. Scavo alleges that Favre treated her like a "hanging slab of meat,"and sent her texts trying to set up a threesome with her and another unidentified therapist. Click for what looks to be Scavo's initial complaint.

Scavo's husband confronted Favre, who "responded in an inappropriate manner," according to the suit. Scavo and O'Toole claim that after refusing Favre's advances they were also suddenly out of a job; the New York Jets and the woman who hires massage therapists for the team are named as co-defendants. "I suspect that this case is only the tip of the iceberg with respect to the harassment and discrimination experienced by women working for NFL teams and their players," says the pair's lawyer.
