NFL: Reinstatement delayed

Associated Press
MILWAUKEE ó NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is giving the Green Bay Packers and Brett Favre at least one more day to resolve their standoff before granting the quarterback his reinstatement.
iThe Packers and Brett Favre are continuing their discussions,î the league said in a statement. iThe commissioner preferred to let those discussions continue rather than act on the reinstatement petition today.î
Once Favre is reinstated, the Packers will have 24 hours to decide whether to cut him or restore him to their active roster.
By not acting Thursday, Goodell decreased the chances Favre would be present at Packers training camp today.
Favreís agent, James iBusî Cook, said the three-time MVP understands he would be walking into a media frenzy by showing up for camp, but heís willing to deal with that rather than have retirement forced on him.
The Wisconsin State Journal and ESPN reported that Favre was considering a 10-year, $20 million marketing and licensing deal offer from the Packers ó and staying retired.
And the Green Bay Press-Gazette reported the Packers and Cook were in iseriousî discussions with the New York Jets about a trade.
HENRY
NEW YORK ó Receiver Chris Henry was suspended by the NFL for four games but may play the final 12 games of the regular season for any team that signs him.
BRONCOS
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. ó John Lynch wasnít content playing a part-time role, so he and the Broncos agreed to amicably separate.
iHe wants to play every down,î coach Mike Shanahan said. iHeck, I canít blame him. Iím not going to say that he canít.î
