Packers Daily Links: Johnny Jolly Still Not Reinstated

With only two days until training camp begins, it's status quo with suspended Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly. "League spokesman Greg Aiello said Monday that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has not made a ruling on Jolly’s reinstatement application, and a league source said Jolly hasn’t been given any indication when a ruling might come down," reports Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. It's debatable whether the Packers would welcome Jolly back in the fold, but regardless, Jolly is running out of time to make a football team this year whether it's with the Packers or elsewhere.

News on another suspended Packers defensive lineman, Anthony Hargrove, comes from Mike Florio of who reports that Hargrove is not currently seeking an injunction to his suspension from the NFL. "The source explains that the players and the NFLPA see no need for a preliminary injunction because the goal is press for a judicial resolution of the lawsuits before the regular season begins," writes Florio. "Unlike Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma, whose one-year suspension began immediately as of July 2, (Will) Smith, Hargrove, and (Scott) Fujita may participate in training camp and the preseason." Vilma is currently the only player seeking an injunction, and the thinking is that if Vilma receives an injunction preventing his suspension, the league will temporarily grant one for Hargrove and the other suspended players as well.

The Packers announced on Monday that Shopko will sponsor Lambeau Field's new south gate. "The Shopko Gate will provide access to 6,700 seats in the new section and its exterior will resemble the Atrium on the other side of the stadium," writes Richard Ryman of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Also of note in the article is that the new seating area in the south end zone is that there will be more concession stands and restrooms than the typical one-to-125 ratio in other new stadiums.

More on the new Shopko Gate at Lambeau Field comes from the Packers official website.

I'm not sure what the holdup on Jolly is. He's been out of football long enough to have served any suspension; keeping him out of football, IMO, only increases his chance of recidvicism (sp?) or going back down the wrong path. While I think his crime was more than possession, if the legal system has him cleared, than Goodell should do what is best for the person -- get back to football. While no longer considered a Packer People, the Pack could do worse than to give him a try.

I'm wondering if the test the NFL do to see how much drugs he has in his body are done yet. It takes time and is very accurate on what drugs, if any, that he has taken and when he took them.

The leash is a great deal shorter these days, for all these guys. Wouldn't be surprised if Jolly never gets reinstated.

What a waste of talent. Hopefully he can get it together.

Purple Draaannkkkk.

Even if Jolly got reinstated, it's highly unlikely he'd make the packers after a nearly 3 year layoff.

Much rather focus on serious football players like Daniels than miscreants like Jolly and Hargrove. But, I guess we'll keep haring about the bad boys.
