Odds on the Green Bay Packers to win the 2009 Super Bowl as well as their division and conference have gotten longer over the past few weeks as distractions continued related to Brett Favre's decision to come out of retirement. Green Bay insisted Favre would not be the starting quarterback for their team, but he will be on their roster.

That decision was made late Sunday.

Brett Favre will be reinstated and added to the Green Bay Packers' active roster Monday, becoming effective at 1 p.m. EDT.

The NFL announced the move Sunday after commissioner Roger Goodell had held off on granting Favre's request for reinstatement for nearly a week, hoping Favre and the team could resolve their standoff. By reinstating Favre, Goodell is following through on a recent promise to force action.

Favre's agent, James "Bus" Cook, confirmed that Favre plans to fly to Green Bay on Sunday and report to the Packers on Monday.

"That's the plan," Cook said in an e-mail to The Associated Press on Sunday.

The Green Bay Packers were listed with 25/1 odds of winning the 2009 Super Bowl and 2/1 odds of winning the NFC North at Bodog Life
