According to NFL.com’s Adam Schefter, Packers quarterback Brett Favre will report to training camp Sunday, July 27, 2008 and is expected to submit a letter of reinstatement to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Apparently Goodell has had a hand in Favre’s comeback. The commish had been in contact with GM Ted Thompson and reportedly urged the villified-in-some-circles GM to find a trading partner for Favre. Sounds like Favre has a fan in Goodell, along with John Madden, Chris Berman, and ESPN. And Peter King.
Green Bay Packers training camp is about to become the set of the next Disney Channel high school drama. Which makes sense because ESPN is owned by Disney.
