GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -NFL commissioner Roger Goodell hopes to have Brett Favre's standoff with the Green Bay Packers resolved by Monday - even if he has to force the issue.
In an interview with the NFL Network on Saturday, Goodell said, ``I think we've gotten to the point where we kind of have to force it.''
Favre retired in March but is having second thoughts about playing this season. The team has offered him a marketing agreement reportedly worth $20 million over 10 years, and he presumably would remain retired if he accepts it. But Favre also could be reinstated and show up to Packers camp early next week, perhaps forcing the team to trade him.
