Will the Packers Welcome Jolly Back?

Johnny Jolly Return to PackersJohnny Jolly is still waiting to find out if he’s going to be reinstated into the NFL. While it’s kind of a “counting your chickens before they’re hatched” issue, the question everyone wants the answer to is, “Which team will he be playing for?”

Currently, the Packers have the rights to Jolly, but will they bring him back? Nobody is saying anything right now. Dom Capers hasn’t been approached with the possibility of Jolly’s return. People close to Jolly know nothing. It’s hard to imagine that Ted and Mike haven’t thought through the ramifications if Jolly were reinstated, but, I suppose, until he’s reinstated, they have bigger fish to fry.

So, what do you think? Should the Packers let Jolly compete for a position on the team? Give your answer in the poll below and tell us why you think that in the comments section.

    I voted Yes…because I believe Johnny deserves a second chance like everybody else who have made mistakes in the NFL,If Vick could get reinstated back into the League after his dog-fighting case, then surely Jolly should be able to.just my 2 cents!:)

      Excellent point Kyanna. Great reason for giving Jolly another shot.

    I voted no….it seems many can’t count as to the number of chances Jolly has already used up,so the second chance sympathy card isn’t cutting it.

    Many feel Jolly would benefit in a sound Org as the Packers to remain sober and use it as an aide or crutch to stand again in society lest the NFL.Let us not forget where he was during his fall…here in the Packer Org.

    I see no reinstatement for Jolly this year or a return to GB as he is only 2 months removed from jail and IMO,Goodell will want to see a full year of sobriety outside of what was a dictated one while in jail.

    As to playing for the Packers if it were a possible…no again.If you begin with two steps forward and allowing for one step backward,soon you’re taking one step forward and two steps back in the name of…2nd,3rd,4th chances.

    The reality is Jolly is now baggage that will need to be dragged…I prefer self rolling wheels with mine.

    I don’t think he is even going to be reinstated this year anyway. Even if he would be I do not believe Ted Thompson would take him back. But just to play devils advocate everything worked out where Jolly was reinstated and he was welcomed back on the team I don’t believe he would be able to compete at a level with the current players and therefore would not make the cut anyway.
