"We have no definite plans to ask for reinstatement," Favre's agent, James "Bus" Cook, said of the former Packers quarterback, who has asked the team for his release. "Right now we have until the sixth week [of the regular season] and Brett has made it pretty clear that he is not willing to come in as a backup.
"If he asks for reinstatement and they start fining him $15,000 a day [for not reporting to training camp], well that just doesn't make sense," Cook said.

"We're going to let Green Bay decide what they want to do. It's their move."

Favre will wait to reinstate: Contrary to a report in the Green Bay Press-Gazette that QB Brett Favre will send a letter to Commissioner Roger Goodell requesting reinstatement....(Updated 07/16/2008).

Well i certainly think it makes sense for him to wait until a trade or release it worked out before he decided to apply for reinstatement. Favre has made a ton of money in the NFL but 15,000 per day will add up real fast. Lets just wait and see what happens

There is no point for him to apply now, he would just be losing money through fines. I definitely think it is coming though.

He would still make plenty of money, even through the fines....And hes not coming back for the money, hes coming back because he wants to play again
