Trent Green To Retire

Veteran NFL quarterback Trent Green has opted to retire, telling Jay Glazer of that it was time to move on after dealing with a series of serious concussions in recent years.
Green, 38, was cut by the St. Louis Rams during the offseason after backing up Marc Bulger last season and starting one game.
Green threw no touchdowns with six interceptions last season.
“I feel this is finally the right time,” Green said.  “I’ve talked about it with [family] for a while, especially with the concussions over the last few years.  We all felt it was the time to do it. . . .
“The way I approached the game, the amount of work I put into my preparation and being someone guys can turn to in the locker room, I don’t want to be a guy who waits for someone to get hurt to get a job.”
Green is going to pursue a career in broadcasting.
Green played in the NFL for 15 seasons, passing for 28,475 career yards, 162 touchdowns, and 114 interceptions.

  1. Why does every friggin person who retires now have to go into broadcasting? Can’t they just let it be? I’m tired of seeing people like Trent Dilfer turn into an “expert analyst” on ESPN. The guy couldn’t hold a football without throwing an INT

  2. People are too quick to forget the season in which he and Kurt Warner crushed the passing TD record for a single season, in which Trent Green filled in for the injured Warner. He made more of an impact on the game than is often credited to him.

  3. The Redskins haven’t had a decent QB since they let Green go. Too bad he didn’t get a better shot when he was younger.

  4. Well, he took his lumps over the years, but he was solid QB for amost of his career. Good for him. HE has done pretty well as a “player-broadcaster” for NFLN.
    Congrats Trent!

  5. It should be noted that he lead in KC for a few years one of the great offenses in history without a #1 receiver and with, unfortunately, a horrible defense.

  6. One of the more star-crossed carreers in the NFL. Could have been in charge of the “Greatest Show on Turf” Rams, if not for a pre-season knee injury. Hope he has better luck in his post football life.

  7. not a hall of famer, but definitely a successful later half of his career. was very underrated during his years in KC.

  8. If it wasn’t for Roidney Harrison taking out his knee, the world wouldn’t have been force fed the story of Kurt Warner.
    Damn you Roidney.

  9. He’s retiring so that he can focus his attentions on his new career as an MMA fighter.

  10. look we can all agree trent green was one of the best qb’s in the league in the early part of this decade. He is a great guy. If he wants a shot at broadcasting that’s great. I just hope he is better than Emmitt Smith.

  11. So, if Butt Faret comes out of retirement to play for the Vikings, will the next big story be Trent Green coming out of retirement to back-up Butt Farte in Minnesota?

  12. Trent Green was one of the best QBs KC has had in a long time. Very underrated.
    He’s always seemed like a nice, well-composed, sensible guy. I think he’ll do well in broadcasting.
