    The "disagree" is for the use of the word "evil". I don't think it is an applicable to either Jolly or Vick.

    Jollys salary will be reduced in the offseason. League minimum or cut. Currently he is on the books for $2.5 mil

    From rotoworld:​
    "The Packers have slashed DE Johnny Jolly's salary from $2.5 million to $715,000.​
    The deal frees up $1.8 million in cap space and puts Green Bay at $18 million under. Fresh out of the penitentiary, 30-year-old Jolly should be thankful GM Ted Thompson is giving him an opportunity to resurrect his career. Jolly has been out of football since the 2009 season, when he was a 16-game starter."​

    Not being funny here but being that johnny has been out of football for nearly four years, I`d jump at ANY pay I was offered !! He`s hardly in a position to demand anything more, and I would still like to give him a shot at a trial with the team.

    That about sums it up. The news here is the Packers didn't outright release him.

    Funny how that works. The guy who went to jail gets a look; the guy who beat his girlfriend but avoids the hoosegow is out the door.

    Sounds like a can't lose situation for the Pack. If it works then he is cheap and a good body on the line and if not who cares...he hasn't been around or counted on in years.

    Exactly...I don't know why people are upset about this. There is literally almost nothing to lose.

    hahaha I haven't said anything lately in this thread. Do you mean all the way back to the Vick/dogfighting comment? As for the Jolly thing, I like the idea of trying him out, especially for the veterans minimum. He used to be good and still might be, although I wouldn't hold my breath about it.

    The guy has a disease, addiction. PED users are cheaters. I'm sure jolly wasnt proud that he was spending $500+ a day on drugs, he couldn't stop. Addiction sucks.

    Thanks Bill. The last time I heard "Blimey" it was in some pirate movie, I think hahaha. I'm having fun posting politics now in the PackersHome forum - their Back Alley. I'm sure you could find PLENTY to disagree with my posts there hahaha.

    cheeshead, are you saying Jolly's addiction is not as bad a thing as PEDs, and it's good he is allowed back? If so I agree with you.

    I've read a few reports that Jolly hasn't participated in OTAs and neither he nor his agent are responding to media inquiries. The Packers haven't seemed worried and MM stated that Johnny was going through "the process." Capers said that Jolly is losing ground every day that he's not on the field competing.

    Does anyone have any clue as to why he hasn't reported? Is there actually an NFL process that he's going through or hoops to jump through, or is he just preferring to work out on his own?

    Well, he finished his rehab program, the NFL already reinstated him and he's under contract, so I don't think the "process" has anything to do with football.

    If I had to guess, I'd say it's a legal issue, like awaiting a hearing to amend the terms of probation allowing out-of-state travel or something of that nature.

    In the unlikely event he somehow gets near his old form and makes the roster it will be a very surprising bonus.
