The Green Bay Packers have welcomed back to town an old friend.
No, not the one who’ll be arriving on November 1 wearing a magic purple helmet that shaves 15 years off his age.
Running back Ahman Green is back, after being available and unwanted by anyone for all of the 2009 season.
Green played for the Packers from 2000 through 2006, before joining the Texans as an unrestricted free agent. The emergence of Steve Slaton last year made Green, who has been injured often, an unneeded luxury.
He fills the roster spot occupied by DeShawn Wynn, who has been placed on injured reserve.
With 46 more yards, Green will become the Packers’ all-time leading rusher.
