Favre Reinstated, Headed to Green Bay With Plans to Resume Playing Career (Updated 6:30 p.m.)

Quarterback Brett Favre is rejoining the Green Bay Packers with plans to end his five-month retirement and play this season, perhaps even reclaiming his old starting job from would-be successor Aaron Rodgers.

The NFL announced today that Commissioner Roger Goodell will reinstate Favre on Monday afternoon.

The league office issued a statement that says: "Commissioner Goodell will reinstate Brett Favre to the Green Bay Packers' active roster, effective at noon (Green Bay time) on Monday, August 4."

Two people familiar with Favre's thinking, speaking on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the topic, said that Favre intends to play this season.

"He's going back to play," one source said.

A source said this evening that the Packers plan to allow Favre to compete for the starting job after saying previously they were committed to Rodgers taking over as the starter and Favre, if he came back, being relegated to backup status. The Packers also ended negotiations with Favre on a marketing deal that would have kept him in retirement, the source said.

Favre, a three-time NFL most valuable player, led the Packers to the NFC title game last season. He turns 39 in October. He has started 275 straight games, including the playoffs.

Late this afternoon, the Packers acknowledged that Favre is returning with the intention of playing this season.

They issued a written statement from Mark Murphy, their team president and chief executive officer, that said: "Sixteen years after Brett Favre came to the Packers, he is returning for a seventeenth season. He has had a great career with our organization and although we built this year around the assumption that Brett meant what he said about retiring, Brett is coming back. We will welcome him back and turn this situation to our advantage.

"Frankly, Brett's change of mind put us in a very difficult spot. We now will revise many actions and assumptions about our long-term future, all predicated on Brett's decision last March to retire. As a result of his decision, we invested considerably in a new and different future without Brett and we were obviously moving in that direction. That's why this wasn't easy. Having crossed the Rubicon once when Brett decided to retire, it's very difficult to reorient our plans and cross it again in the opposite direction--but we'll put this to our advantage.

"Brett will be in camp tomorrow. Although there has been uncertainty regarding Brett's return, [General Manager] Ted Thompson and Coach [Mike] McCarthy had previously discussed this and have had a plan in place. Coach McCarthy will talk to the team and the quarterbacks about the plan moving forward, and after he has done that we will share it publicly.

"No matter what, I look forward to another successful season for the Packers and our fans. This has been a tough situation, but the Packers will make the most of it."

The Packers have scheduled a news conference with McCarthy for Monday night to discuss the team's quarterback situation.

Earlier, a person close to the Packers said team officials had remained intent upon keeping Favre off the practice field in Green Bay if possible and did not believe that negotiations on a financial deal for Favre to remain in retirement were over. They planned to intensity their efforts to trade Favre if they failed to convince him to stay retired, the source said. But, according to the source, the Packers even then planned to allow Favre to return to the team, as required by NFL rules, if they couldn't convince him to stay retired and didn't receive what they regarded as a suitable trade offer.

Favre plans to travel to Green Bay today and the Packers, according to sources, have indicated they will make a roster move involving the quarterback Monday.

Favre had been considering a lucrative offer by the Packers to pay him to stay retired.

Technically, the Packers don't have to make a move Monday since league rules give them 24 hours after he's reinstated to trade him, release him or put him back on the roster. But they apparently have agreed to act Monday. If they don't trade Favre immediately and instead put him back on their roster, they perhaps could trade him later in training camp.

Favre currently is on the Packers' reserve-retired list. The team would have to perform a move involving another player to clear a roster spot for Favre if he's added to the roster Monday.

The Packers are scheduled to have a scrimmage tonight. They aren't scheduled to practice Monday but resume practicing Tuesday. If the Packers put him back on their roster, he presumably would practice for the first time Tuesday. He first would have to pass a physical but is said to be in good shape after working out regularly while at home in Mississippi.

Favre previously had indicated he wasn't interested in being Rodgers's backup.

The Packers perhaps still could trade Favre before the regular season if an injury to another team's quarterback increases his trade value.

Thompson has said the club will not trade him to a fellow NFC North team like the Minnesota Vikings, Chicago Bears or Detroit Lions. But there have been reports that the Packers might reconsider that if they're left with no other options. Letting Favre go to Minnesota might be particularly difficult for the Packers, who filed a tampering charge with the league against the Vikings for alleged improper contact with Favre. The New York Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers reportedly have expressed interest in Favre but he has not seemed particularly interested in playing for either of those teams. Favre could, in effect, block any proposed trade by refusing to report to a new team.

The Packers have offered Favre a 10-year marketing deal, reportedly worth between $20 million and $25 million, for him not to play. But Favre has indicated he would like to play this season. Favre, who retired in March but changed his mind in recent weeks, has asked the Packers to release him but they have refused, at least so far. Many in the league are convinced that Favre wants to play for the Vikings.

There had been conflicting reports in recent days about whether Favre would accept the Packers' offer to pay him not to play. The Packers say the deal has been on the table since March. But it did not become public knowledge until after Murphy traveled to Hattiesburg, Miss., last week to meet with Favre and his agent, Bus Cook, at Cook's office.

Cook did not immediately return a message today.

I'm happy to see that one professional athlete is not about the money. If he took the money and ran, I would not be upset either, because $20 million is a lot of money, and no one in their right mind should ever turn down that kind of offer either, but a 10-year deal...hmmm...sounds a bit fishy to me.

He would have to be locked in to the Packers front office, who he obviously dislikes, for 10 more years.

Seems like he made the right decision.

What a drama queen. Farve can't stand attention not being poured on him and his crying months ago at his "goodbye" talk now seems laughable. I wonder if he's going to pull the 'I'm going to retire' garbage next year, too.

Posted by: Farvesucks | August 3, 2008 1:05 PM

If Favre plays one minute, the Packers should cancel any plans to retire his number. He cares nothing about his team. He only wants attention.

I reminds me of Springsteen's tune "Glory Days"

It's time to hang up the jock strap and get a grown up job Brett!

Posted by: Doug | August 3, 2008 1:25 PM

How soon we forget. Numbers 4 and 92 put Greenbay back on the map. He's clearly the best quarterback, play him. Rogers played in two games last year and was hurt in both games.

Posted by: John Boya | August 3, 2008 1:27 PM

He was number 2 for mvp of the league last year so I don't know where your getting that he's washed up. That means if not for Video taping Brady mr. Favre would have not 1, not 2, not 3 but 4 mvp's.

Posted by: baz | August 3, 2008 1:32 PM

The real question is: WHO CARES?!?! It's August and football doesn't count for another month or so. What a complete drama queen. Isn't this the same guy who spoke out against a teammate's hold-out a couple of years ago. He said how selfish the guy was and how he had a contract that he needed to honor? Well, no one put a gun to his head and force him to sign the "retirement" contract. The larger point is that no one player is bigger than the game itself. Eventually, all parties involved have to move on. The Packers have to plan for their future, one that will ultimately not involve Favre. They cannot afford to keep playing the will he retire game at the end of each season. I forgot who said it but I remember hearing someone say that the second they heard someone mention retirement, they move to replace that guy asap. Favre should be no different. Play and shut up or quit and shut up but mostly just shut up.

I don't blame the Packers for wanting off the Favre carousel. 4 is setting back the franchise years with his "retirement" indecision.

What a joke. How many years do we have to have the same silliness from Favre. He had many good and monitarily highly profitable years and retired. Accept it Brett and move on. There certainly is more to life than football. Let your ego shrink and you will see the tremendous need to help others less well off than yourself.

Posted by: Hastings1066 | August 3, 2008 1:58 PM


I admire favre's love for the game. all these useless people busting him either have lousy jobs or have no ambition to be a winner.
my only regret will be the redskins not signing him. we have become a training camp for lousy quarterbacks. just give us one talented qb and we go very deep into the playoffs.
all you losers with minimum wage jobs. get motivated , become winners in a real job and get over it

Posted by: WHERESGIBBS | August 3, 2008 2:11 PM

Favre coming back to play could have been the greatest news to any true Packer fan. The fact that he would consider playing for any other team is letting down every fan that stood by him during his record setting interceptions, touch downs, starts, and the many others. Green Bay has given him a home and in turn he gave the Packers' hope. He has won the hearts of so many all across this country, I can only hope he doesn't disappoint those who believed in him during the good and the horrible seasons. He should do what's best for him, but what is best for those who love him as well.

Like most athletes, Brett Farve never grew up and became a man, and never will.

Posted by: too bad so sad | August 3, 2008 2:12 PM

He can still perform at a high level - you want to talk about bad QB play, look at Rex Grossman for crying out loud. Someone should pay Grossman to retire.

Let's not forget who built the house the Pack plays in now. It's a bad situation, but he's still the proven choice!

Yeah Favre!

Come back and get one more superbowl.

Then run for US Senate.

All would be right in the world.

OK, I'll stop posting. Well, maybe not. I'm back. Changed my mind. OK, this is really it. I'm warning you. I didn't actually mean it. If you don't take me back, I'll quit. But, I did quit, but I didn't really quit. I was for quitting before I was against it.

Dain Bramage.

One too many sacks. I quit. And I'll quit quitting if you don't quit it.

Posted by: Bertt Farve | August 3, 2008 2:31 PM

I think the Packers are going to reinstate him and put him on the roster Monday, and then on Tuesday they will deactivate him and let him sit, just like the Eagles did T O, when he was their "problem child". This way they have more time to wait around for a deal of their liking.

Posted by: HarryL | August 3, 2008 2:41 PM

I have been a loyal Packers fan for more than 50 years. If the Pack reinstate Brett and give him his old job back, ahead of Rodgers, that loyalty will disappear in a New York minute. Brett retired...he should remain retired. His conduct causes me to wonder if anyone in the NFL will ever be able to trust his word or conduct again.

Posted by: BorderResident | August 3, 2008 2:53 PM

Quit your bithin' Favre Haters. If your not a Packer or Farve fan then you don't get a vote as far as i'm concerned. Favre is top notch and if he does change his mind every year for the next 10 years, so what. He earned it! What have you done in the past 16 years? Maybe you should evaluate your life instead. maybe your mad that your highschool coach cut you in 9th grade because you have no talent. Is that Favre's fault you have no talent? But the bottom line is if you had the talent and had an opportunity to play again at age 39, you would. But guess what? You don't have the talent or opportunity. So go call your 9th grade coach and ask him why your not in favres shoes!! Instead of crying outloud and wasting space on the net. Greenbay stands behind Favre and so do I. He gave me entertainment for 16 years and I hope many more. I am a fan that never missed not one greenbay/favre game an I hope I can see his legacy for many years to come, no matter what team he desides to play for. Say hello to your 9th grade coach for me. Because he was correct, still no talent. -snowman

The big story is, really, who cares? It's a small story in the overall scheme of things. Here we have the Hall of Fame ceremonies and Brett Favre is the story. As much as I'd like to see him play, he was the one who retired; he wasn't forced to retire; he choose to do so. Just as, for several years, he's kept the team at bay so they couldn't make definitive draft plans, this time he retired and they could make definitive plans for the future, both from a current roster make-up and from a draft perspective; and then when everything is done, he wants to impose his standards and his personal wishes again.

He's previously publicly lambasted teammates for not doing things for the betterment of the team; that's the pot calling the kettle black. He's looking out for only one person at the expense of the entire team and the franchise. Even as good as he is, he's not irreplacable, and he's not the entire team; other players helped make him good last year.

And, I'm offended by the earlier post criticizing people for not having "real jobs" and complaining. Most people posting, whether I agree with them or not, on this thread and others, have valid points and care about the game, about the team, about the players. Just because his player, Brett Favre, is being picked on is no reason to crap on everyone who disagrees with his view, or disagrees with his player. I, personally, with a winning job, care about Green Bay and the team, and my family who goes to games weekly.

Shoot, back in 1960? Vince Lombardi would have looked for the worst team in the NFL and traded this punk......To the Redskins or the Steelers! He could have backed up Norm Snead or Ted Marchibroda!

Brett Farve is NOTHING without good receivers who catch his off-target lobs in traffic!

Trade him to Chicago for Hester, Urlacher, or Lance Briggs! He'll toss a pass into the wind off of Lake Michigan and he'll cry to Mommie about how much better it was in the Frozen Tundra!

What a wuss!

Posted by: New Mexico Mike | August 3, 2008 3:14 PM

Brett is good for the team. Isn't that the most important thing, after all. He's a good player and a team player and deserves to play. Why don't they let the team he played with decide if he should play or not. Obviously, when you need a quarterback who you can "count on", he's the one. He's been there when they needed him. Give him a chance. He at least deserves that - a chance for a comeback. They need to concentrate on acting like a team, instead of making offers, negotiating, etc. It is the team that wins, not the owners or the fans, or the managers. We all lose out if the team doesn't win.

enough, enough, enough already of this Farve junk. The guy has been reading his press clippings for so many years about how great he is and listening to sports commentators, particularly madden. Farve actually thinks he is the second coming of J.C.

Posted by: renaw9 | August 3, 2008 3:40 PM

Put all the emotions side and ask the simple question "who gives the packers the best chance to win Farve or Rodgers"

Sense we all know the answer why are the packers not greeting Farves return with open arms. They have a playoff team that has the chance to be a contender NOW and the GM wants push Farve away for Rodgers, not to mention anger alot of fans and even some players. Crazy.

Posted by: Anonymous | August 3, 2008 3:52 PM

put him on roster. set him at far end of bench. ignore him, don't even let him on field as waterboy. Keep him on practice squad, don't dress him on game day. then see how much value he has and who would want him. The league can force him onto roster, team doesn't have to let him play.

Posted by: ksobserver | August 3, 2008 3:59 PM

If Brett wants another super bowl ring, then he should be given one since he has already earned one.

The New York Giants should purchase Brett a super bowl ring because without Brett's interception in overtime, the NY Giants would never have made it to last year's super bowl and won it.

Brett Farve is an MVP to every New York Giants fan.

Baz's comment is the lamest comment i have ever read. How can you seriously think the patriots kept recording defensive coordinators after they were caught?

Posted by: bazisaretard | August 3, 2008 4:24 PM

Why is it such a big deal to let the guy play? i was not a big fan of Brett Favre until I realized he's just like one of my favorite guitar players, Jeff Beck. Somebody said of Beck, "If you see him live, it might be great or it might be awful. Fhe's willing to take chances." I would like to see the Packers with a chance at the Super Bowl again this season. That won't happen with Rodgers. let the man play. (So what if he acts like a kid sometime. Isn't that what we LIKE about him?)

Posted by: Christto | August 3, 2008 4:28 PM

as a resident of this myth that stands by the quality of life little hamlet by the bay, i am sickened. first by this monumental jerk and secondly, by the team's willingness to bribe this man. people can not afford food, gas, and insurance. we are playing these thugs millions. what the packers' should do is play hardball. they should tell the real story about mr. favre. sorry this is an embarrassment. let 'em play football. give the people the 20 million dollar bribe. it is time we the people meant something.

Posted by: fusfert lost in occupied amerika | August 3, 2008 4:31 PM

I love the comment on how Vince Lombardi would have "looked for the worst team in the NFL and traded this punk..."

The same Lombardi who left the Packers for the Redskins later that decade?

That aside, there has to be something else going on here that no one is aware of outside the Packer organization. Favre didn't handle this situation all that well, but lambasting a guy for retiring who then wants to unretire within a three month period is ridiculous. There's no contract he has to sign to retire. He's not going back on his word.

As for the Packers, they just look foolish in how they've handled this. You put the players on the field who give you the best chance to win. To shut Favre out completely means the Packers believe Aaron Rodgers and his rookie backups give them the best chance to win, which makes no sense. So...what else is REALLY going on here?

Posted by: John Wright | August 3, 2008 4:33 PM

not unlike the horrific way Detroit treated Barry Sanders..

If I owned an NFL team, I would make the trade for Brett.. then release him the second the contract was signed... just so he could sign with any team he liked...

Brett Favre has earned the right...

how many 1st and second round draft picks pan out anyway???

The Packers clearly have the freedom to direct the team in any way they deem necessary... and seem to have the support of the public stock holders... Theirs is a unique situation to be sure.. But management is tarnishing its own image and that of Brett Favre's.. they hold the rights to Brett's contract... its not the other way around...

Release him from his contract... Or start him...

Trading Brett makes the Packers look as greedy as a team could look.. Sucking the last few drops of value this legend has left before he actually does retire... makes you wonder if the Snyder secretly purchased a majority share of the Packers stock.....

Posted by: Talontbo | August 3, 2008 4:54 PM

Brett, like any other player deserves the right to change his mind and come back out of retirement. He is not the first nor the last player to do that. I am not sure why this is such an ordeal for people to accept. Have you not changed your mind, or are you just bitter that you weren't allowed to change your mind?

Then to people that say Brett has been waffling or whatever term you use. Well, I am sure that many talented older players evaluate after each year if they will or should return. What that shows is his true commitment to play at a high level. Yes over the last years he has reevaluated and taken time to determine if he should continue or retire. Due to the media coverage and people's interest this was always big news. He wasn't allowed to have these thoughts privately without everyone else knowing about it.

Regarding people being upset that Brett asked to be released from the team. Well, it is not that he didn't want to play for Green Bay as people speculated but that TT made it clear he wasn't welcome. The media reports that the Packers will welcome back Brett with open arms. Then the story changes a little more...we will welcome him back as a back up. Another change by the Packers...well we will welcome him back but he won't be allowed to compete. Then TT tells Brett to stay away from Training Camp a few days so they can figure it out. Favre submits his paperwork and then MM travels out to try to bribe him not to play and keep him away from returning! Are you kidding me?

TT has handled this whole situation horribly. Was it unexpected? Maybe. Does it make things a little more challenging for Green Bay? Probably. But are you telling me that they couldn't have figured out a better way to handle this situation.

What has Brett done wrong in this situation: retired too early and not hired a PR representative to deal with the media coverage.

My vote is to let Brett come back and compete for the starting position at Green Bay. If the Packers don't want him, then trade him someplace where he wants to go or release him as he asked for a long time ago.

What is TT worried about? This whole situation make no sense. Brett gives the Packers the best team for the season. Brett is still playing at a very high level- maybe some of you need to go back and check the stats and watch the games from last year. With regard to the NY game the Packers as a whole did not play well and the coaching staff did not make adjustments to address the problems on the field.

Worried what he could do on another team? Wonder why? Could it be that he can still play at such a high level? But if you don't want him...he deserves the right to go somewhere else and play.

Let Brett play either in Green Bay or somewhere else, yes even with the Vikings.

TT needs to get it right. This truly comes down to ego. TT didn't bring in Brett Favre and feels like he can't take credit for the Packers success with him there. He wants to build a team that he has built with the quarterback that he drafted. Ok, I know it is complicated since Rogers only has 2 years I believe left on his contract. Does that still make this the right choice to start Rogers? If it is really, truly, about winning and putting the best team on the field then we all know what should happen this year.

I hope to see Brett starting and playing for the Green Bay Packers or for him to being playing on another team elevating that team to another level.

For now we all just have to wait.....

If GB would have been over the salary cap before Favre unretired, what would have happened with his return? Did they have to keep space open until he officially filed papers, which it appears he never did?

That is, could they have locked him out by spending like mad?

Posted by: Michael1945 | August 3, 2008 7:38 PM

I have to agree, Brett Favre is one of the best QB's in any football
organization, Green Bay should take him back with no questions asked. I think
it was Green Bay who somewhat forced him to make a decision regarding
retirement back in March & at that point he did what he thought was best. I
don't believe for a moment his reaction upon announcing his retirement was false
or an act, I believe it truly hurt him to give up his career and the team he
loves. Hence, his decision to want to come back and play football for those
very same reasons. He loves the game and loves playing for Green Bay. He's
given Green Bay his all for so many years! And so many of the fans have given
him our best back to him and the entire team because of him, and yes, other
players as well. The Packers, blew this out of the water for what ever reason.
It should have been a done deal as soon as Brett said he would like to play
again. Especially after that arrogant Rodgers told the fans to basically shut
up. Bad call on his part! He really needs to prove himself to me and many
others after that.

Posted by: FanInWisconsin | August 3, 2008 10:31 PM

HE just wants to play people. Let him. Rodger's does not have what it takes!! I grew up in wisconsin, and we love Brett. He is NOT about the money, nor the publicity. He just wants to play the game... that is why you have to love him. Just remember last season the seahawks game... one of my all time favorite games. He is a true blue and in a time when you don't even get to know your players on your team, because they keep going for the money, this is one wisconsin can always count on. We love you, and are so happy that you are back on the rooster.

Posted by: Natalie from Wisconsin | August 3, 2008 10:56 PM

In my mind, as well as many others...Brett favre could easily be the best quarterback to ever play the game. All this talk about "staying retired"...whatever people. Nobody complained when Michael Jordan came out of retirement...because he was the KING of basketball and he earned the right to change his mind about that. The same goes for Favre...the man has made a tremendous mark in the NFL and people will really miss seeing him play (whether they admit it or not). I say, let the man play the game that he loves to play...whether you release him and let him find his own place, or whether you trade him and get something just as good out of the deal...JUST LET HIM PLAY!!!

Posted by: Doug | August 4, 2008 12:56 PM

And let me just ad this.... either way, Brett will play the game, because he is now reinstated. The real question, as far as I see it, is whether Packers will show respect to the man that did put them back on the map. Don't get me wrong, the packers have always had a good team. But, they will never be the same without Favre. 16 years as a starter, compared to playing 2 games and being injured in both games.... I think even Rodgers would keep and start favre if he was in the decision making position for Green Bay. This is a no brainer people. You either still want him or you don't. Either way, HE WILL PLAY THE GAME!! Now it's up to Green Bay to decide....will Favre win his next championship in 2009, in Green Bay, or say...Minnesota...chicago? Because neither of those teams will have any quams about starting "the legend". By the way, if you can't tell...I am a fan of the Pack...but I am an even bigger Brett Favre fan than anything...and willl forever remain that way.

Posted by: Doug | August 4, 2008 1:09 PM

maybe brett saw rodgers in action and said to himself 'is that the best they have????'. what ever happened to live and let live???? also, i'm not being paid to decide what happens to brett---are you????

Posted by: smarternu | August 4, 2008 1:17 PM

I say he should play the game because thats obviosly what he wants. He deserves to win a super bowl before he really does retire. I think they owe it to him to either start or to let him go somewhere where they want him. The only reason Packers cant decide is cause they dont wanna start him and they are afraid that if he went to chicago or minnesota or anywhere for that matter then they will get beat.
