The number one story in the NFL right now is obviously Brett Favre, but there are some other things going on right now that you should know about.

Brett Favre - He is reported to be returning to the Packers' camp that starts July 27th. There are many conflicting reports about what he will do and where he could go. The Jets and the Buccaneers have been given permission to talk to Favre, but it is uncertain if the Packers or Favre would go for a trade to either of those places. He might just end up back in Green Bay (which I believe is the best situation for both the team and Favre.)

Terry Glenn - He has been waived by the 'Boys opening up the other starting spot for Patrick Crayton, who should see quite a rise in his fantasy production.

LaMont Jordan - Finally... we all knew it was coming - he was released by the Raiders. There are now reports that the Patriots of all teams are showing interest in the free-agent running back... interesting.

Marvin Harrison - He is apparently healthy and ready to go for training camp... can he stay that way?

Brandon Marshall - Adam Schefter, of the NFL Network, reports Denver Broncos WR Brandon Marshall could be suspended four to eight games... That would be a terrible situation not only for Marshall, but for the entire Broncos' team.

Ryan Grant - Tom Silverstein, of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, reports the Green Bay Packers and RB Ryan Grant are at a standstill in contract negotiations. The chances of Grant being in uniform for the start of training camp do not look good.

Steven Jackson - Jim Thomas, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reports St. Louis Rams RB Steven Jackson is officially a holdout after not reporting for the start of training camp. The team was in negotiations with his agent, Eugene Parker, Thursday, July 24. They hope to have him in camp sooner rather than later.

I will bring more updates later.
