Green Bay Packers Won't Comment On Johnny Jolly

Johnny Jolly wants to come back to the NFL, but don't expect the Green Bay Packers or anyone connected to the organization to talk about him at all in the near future. The Green Bay Press-Gazette attempted to reach Ted Thompson today, but he was unavailable. In his absence, a team spokesman told the Press-Gazette that the team "likely would continue its policy of not commenting [on] any matters related to suspended defensive lineman Johnny Jolly."

There's no timetable for when a ruling will be made on Jolly's reinstatement. Obviously, if Jolly is reinstated by the league, the Packers would then be put into a position where they had to not only comment, but make some kind of decision. Even though Jolly has not played in a game since 2009, the Packers still own the rights to Jolly's contract.

Don't expect to hear any more about Jolly until his request for reinstatement is either accepted or denied. If he is allowed back into the league, the Packers will have to make a decision about whether or not to give him another chance, but that could be a few weeks (if not months) off.
