Former Packers and Texans running back Ahman Green announced his retirement in August of 2011, but he’s since reconsidered. At age 35, Green wants back in the NFL.
And he’s willing to chase down kickoffs and punts to make it happen.
“I came into the league in special teams, and I’d have no problem doing that again,” Green told FOX Sports Wisconsin. “… Just put me anywhere. I’m a football player first. That’s something my dad always reminded me. ‘You’re a football player, not just a running back.’”
Green believes he’s got “five years left in me,” and he’ll “be ready” if a team calls.
Green was released by the CFL’s Montreal Alouettes last year, and looked washed up the last time he set foot on an NFL field. He’d love to return to the Packers, though.
“I know that I could help the team,” he said. “I’d be happy to play along with Aaron [Rodgers] a few more years and help those guys win another Super Bowl. I would love to be around.
“I can’t sit around and wait forever, so if it doesn’t happen, I’ve got to move on with my life.”
