GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Brett Favre has faxed his reinstatement
paperwork to the NFL and is awaiting approval from NFL commissioner
Roger Goodell, league spokesman Randall Liu confirmed Tuesday.
Once Favre is granted reinstatement, a step considered a
formality, the Packers will have 24 hours to release the star
quarterback or return him to their active roster. Green Bay general
manager Ted Thompson has said the team will not release Favre.
ESPN first reported that Favre sent the letter earlier Tuesday.
