Pack prepared to wait for Favre
March, 30, 2006
Even though Packers coach Mike McCarthy wants a decision from Brett Favre about his future no later than Saturday, the Packers are prepared to move back the April 1 deadline for a $3 million bonus again if necessary. The Packers already have moved the date back twice this month, and in some ways, the deadline is arbitrary. He's not scheduled to receive the $3 million until September if he's playing. So it's more like a September roster bonus. The Packers expect him to continue his career, and while they would like an answer, the team is not going to cut him if he's not ready to make an announcement Friday.
