It's the fourth time the Packers have moved back the date of the bonus. Originally due on March 22, the $3 million bonus was supposed to kick in on Saturday.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Favre would receive the bonus on Dec. 1, provided he is on the team. If he retires or is traded, the Packers owe him nothing.
The bonus date, along with the failed hope it would spur Favre to make a decision sooner rather than later, is more an accounting measure than anything, since the bonus would count toward the salary cap, regardless of when it's actually paid.
