It looks as if the Brett Favre saga with the Packers is going to continue. Tomorrow.
Commissioner Roger Goodell, with reinstatement papers in hand for the future Hall of Fame QB, says that no action will be taken today in if he is going to grant the QB his freedom to play again or not. Basically it’s just a stall tactic as Goodell still wants the Pack and Favre to settle their differences and play nice. Doesn’t look as if it’s going to happen.
It was reported earlier today that Packers President Mark Murphy was to meet with Favre and his agent, Bus Cook, and again was going to try and talk Favre out of coming to Packers training camp and causing the biggest media circus outside the Super Bowl you’ll ever see.
The bottom line on the deal is the moment that Goodell reinstates Farve, and he is going to have to at some point, the Packers will basically have one of three decisions and 24 hours to follow through with it – they can cut him, trade him, or activate him.
The team does not want him there, and they have said that releasing him is not an option, which means the ball is in the court of only one thing – trade him. With that goes though the fact that Favre will have to agree to show up for the team that makes a deal for him, and the Pack is going to have to find a trading partner.
