Favre reinstated, will report to camp Monday
It's still unclear whether QB will try to play for Packers or accept deal
BREAKING NEWS
The Associated Press
updated 9:32 a.m. PT, Sun., Aug. 3, 2008

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Brett Favre will be reinstated and added to the Green Bay Packers’ active roster Monday.

The NFL announced the move Sunday. Commissioner Roger Goodell had held off on granting Favre’s request for reinstatement for nearly a week. He hoped Favre and the team could resolve their standoff. By reinstating Favre, Goodell is following through on a recent promise to force action.

The reinstatement will become effective at noon on Monday. It's not clear if Favre plans to play as a backup or accept the team's offer for a marketing deal.

Favre submitted a letter requesting reinstatement from the Packers’ reserve/retired list Tuesday, but Goodell had held off approving it in hopes that Favre and the Packers could resolve their dispute.

Favre is having second thoughts about playing this season after retiring in March. But even after three weeks’ worth of rising tensions between Favre and the team, he apparently still might stay retired.

Favre is considering the Packers’ offer of a marketing agreement worth a reported $20 million over 10 years.

Once Favre is officially reinstated, the Packers have 24 hours to decide whether to release him or add him to their active roster.

Favre's arrival would create a media frenzy in Packers camp, and might force team officials to redouble their efforts to trade him or reconsider their decision not to release him.

The Packers fear Favre would sign with division rival Minnesota immediately after being released, and have filed tampering charges against the Vikings alleging the team had inappropriate dialogue with Favre.

In the most unlikely scenario, Favre would linger on the Packers’ roster as a $12 million backup to Aaron Rodgers.

“Primarily, it starts with the fact, does Brett want to play football?” Goodell said Saturday in an interview with the NFL Network. “The second is, do the Packers want him to play for the Packers. Those are the two principal points that have to be resolved. And only two parties can make that determination, not me.”

Packers coach Mike McCarthy again praised his players for not allowing the Favre situation to distract them.

“What’s going on between Brett and the organization is something that the players and coaches, we cannot handle,” McCarthy said Saturday. “We’re not involved in it. I think they did a good job from a responsibility standpoint dealing with it for about two days, but the focus has been on improving.”

McCarthy was not pleased with the way the Packers’ offense performed in practice Saturday afternoon, making offensive players repeat two periods of practice as defensive players headed for the showers. But McCarthy didn’t blame the sub-par performance on the Favre situation.

“Today was our first bump in the road in terms of having too many negative things happen in practice, and I think that’s a credit to their focus and their energy level and staying true to, it’s training camp,” McCarthy said. “Everybody is going through it, and they’ve done a really good job. No one is really talking about it, frankly.”

They almost have to. They are not going to have a $13 mill. backup. Its either they release him or trade him to a team of Brett's choosing, pretty sure he has a not trade clause.

"Almost" being the operative word. People will stand in line to buy tickets just to heckle Aaron and will hover like vultures waiting for Brett to get in the game. That is money in the seats which all NFL owners like!!!

I think that Packer management is smarter than that. If they keep Favre on the team, he will be starting by week 4. Rodgers will not resign with them at the end of the season and they will be at the mercy of Brett next year. Brohm will not be close to being ready next season, and Flynn is not an NFL caliber QB. So, they will either trade or release him, otherwise they are f'ing themselves after this season.

He does not have a no-trade clause. Now that he has reported to camp, the Packers could trade him anywhere and there wouldn't be much he could do about it.

I stand corrected on the no trade clause.

However, Brett is basically his own no trade clause. He can neg any trade simply by telling teams he doesn't want to go to that he will not report and re-re-retire. So basically the only place he will go is a place he wants to go to.
