No Grievance Planned Yet in Favre Case
NFL Players Association officials say they won't file a grievance on behalf of Brett Favre if he merely is asked today not to show up at training camp.
The Packers can ask Favre not to attend camp.
What they can't do is keep him from attending camp if Favre shows up.
That's what would lead to a grievance, and certainly the union will monitor things very, very closely from here now that the Packers are making things clear just how much they don't want Favre in Green Bay, even just to practice.
Packers President Mark Murphy is meeting today in Mississippi with Favre and the quarterback's agent, Bus Cook, and Murphy reportedly planned to ask Favre not to report to camp.
Favre sent a letter to the league office Tuesday asking NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to reinstate him. If Goodell reinstates Favre today, the Packers would have 24 hours to put him on their roster, release him or trade him.
