Trent Green weighed Bears' offer, but "That's not a possibility"

Retired quarterback Trent Green has confirmed a report that the Bears reached out to him about a comeback. But Green says he’s done playing football.

That’s not a possibility,” Green said in an interview on ESPN 1000 in Chicago.

Green, who played for Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz both in Washington and in St. Louis, said he was open to the idea when the Bears first approached him. But he ultimately decided that he doesn’t want to uproot his family and doesn’t want to give up his job on NFL Network.

“I chewed on it for a couple of weeks,” Green said. “I sat down with my family to decide where we wanted to live. We ended up coming to Kansas City. You get to a certain point where you just have to make a decision one way or the other. For me, I needed to move on to the next phase, and that was to continue my TV career.”

The Bears are still considering adding a veteran backup, preferably one with experience in Martz’s offense. Marc Bulger (who played for Martz in St. Louis) and Josh McCown (who played for Martz in Detroit) are the two veteran backups who have been mentioned the most.

  1. Yeah because Josh McCown has such a stellar career of doing anything other than holding a clipboard.

  2. The Bears also inquired about the availability of Steve McNair, but his reps commented that he was “not coming out of retirement anytime soon.”

  3. Good – we don’t need a vet to hold a clipboard. Just hire or “contract” Warner as a consultant to Cutler and it will ten times better than Green.

  4. Trent Green doesn’t need to join the Bears to get smacked around and get concussions.
    He could get concussions chasing his kids around the yard….or maybe picking up the groceries.

    Great idea!
    Maybe the Bears should give up a couple more 1st rounders for him, since he is still under contract in Arizona.

    Watch out for that bus, jet, falling sky, crazy girlfriend, etc. You’re a sorry excuse for human being.
