Just like a bad odor, he will not go away.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Brett Favre will be reinstated and added to the Green Bay Packers' active roster Monday. The NFL announced the move Sunday after commissioner Roger Goodell had held off on granting Favre's request for reinstatement for nearly a week, hoping 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 1 p.m. EDT on Monday.

Favre's agent, James "Bus" Cook, confirmed that Favre plans to fly to Green Bay on Sunday and report to the Packers on Monday.

"That's the plan," Cook said in an e-mail to The Associated Press on Sunday.

Favre could be on the field as early as Tuesday.

Favre retired in March but has been having second thoughts. Team officials have insisted they are moving on with Aaron Rodgers, though, causing tensions to rise between Favre and the team.

It is not clear whether Favre's reinstatement indicates that he has rejected a long-term, multimillion-dollar marketing agreement offered by the team. Reinstatement could force the Packers to increase their offer to Favre in hopes that he remains retired and avoids turning their training camp into a media circus this week.

Team officials publicly have ruled out releasing Favre, fearing he would immediately sign with division rival Minnesota. The Packers could still also trade him.

The team has a scrimmage at Lambeau Field on Sunday night, then does not have another scheduled public practice until Tuesday morning.

Favre's arrival in training camp could cause a major disruption to the team, although he would not likely begin practicing with the Packers right away.

Coach Mike McCarthy has said the Packers have a plan in place should Favre report to camp. He first would have to pass a physical exam and a conditioning test, then would likely be limited to individual drills.

Goodell told the NFL Network on Saturday that he thinks the situation has lingered long enough.

"I think we have to force it," Goodell said. "I think it's come to the point where there need to be some decisions made on behalf of the Packers, on behalf of Brett, on behalf of all the fans."

Speaking as a Favre hater, I really hope the Packers make him carry a clipboard all season.
That being said, I watched our game last year against Green Bay yesterday; they played a LOT better after Rogers came in. Favre threw two interceptions into coverage.

If Romo can ever shake his Favre like tendencies, Dallas will win a few Super Bowls. Romo like Favre believes he can complete every pass.

favre's a media whore and after having people like madden blow him every 10 seconds, he probably misses all the attention. the packers are so tired of him, that they offered him 20 mil to just stay home. that defense got them to where they were last year, not the mighty favre.

I think he gets traded at this point.

I agree and fear it will be to the Vikings. On general principle, I don't want him here.

There's plenty of blame for both sides: GB should have let Favre back at the beginning but told him his starting spot was in jeopardy; that he'd have to compete with Rogers for it. That way, the best man is the starter. Isn't the point to field the best team possible?

They'll deal him to the Jets who will then in turn deal him to the Vikings. And then Tamalie's head will explode.

I'd love for that to happen as long as there is a massive amount of players & picks thrown around w/ it like the Walker trade back in the day.

I really don't buy that.  I believe Favre really did dance around with them back in April like they claim, and also let it out that he was "gaguing the interest of other teams" back in April.  Really looks to me that Favre tried to orchestrate his way out of Green Bay (but on his own terms, and not with an amicable trade - hence his telling the Commish that he'd only talk to Minnesota and Chicago, yet now, after his conversation with the commish, agreeing to talk to them).

They'd have been foolish to just throw him the keys to the car again if he really had been jerking them aound like that (not to mention for the previous however years of off-seasons that they've waited on him and catered to him).
