Alouettes bid adieu to Ahman Green


Ahman Green’s bid to play in three football leagues in as many seasons came to a quiet conclusion on Sunday.

The Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League cut Green on Sunday, only three months after they signed him to compete for a starting job.  The former Packers star showed up to training camp with an injured hamstring and the Alouettes didn’t wait around for him.

Green had a so-so season for the UFL’s Omaha Nighthawks last year.  It’s uncertain if he’ll try the UFL once again.

  1. The guy doesn’t need money so I am assuming it is the love of the game that keeps him around. From his days in high school, college and the pros he has been a stud. It is a shame that he has come to a point where he is “so-so” in a UFL league.

  2. my favorite packers player. played, basically, with one arm because of an accident that left him with bendable rods holding one arm together. without the resulting fumbling problem, he may have become one of the all-time nfl greats. one of two players to ever have multiple 90-plus yard td runs. the other was bo jackson. a true wonder of human nature. and to think: holmgren, the guru (!) traded him for fred vinson, who never played a regular season down for seattle!

    NFL = use em’ up and spit them out while the owner continue to count the $ with new cattle.


    The players sign up for it. Don’t try and assign a negative connotation to a mutually consensual business relationship.
