    This was posted on another forum.....


    Green was on sirus radio and said his heart was in GB and hoped a deal will get worked out, but he is looking for a long term deal and said if it cant get done in GB he would like to reunite with Mike Sherman and the Texans. That he talks to Mike regularly and likes and respects him and would want to play for him again. He aslo said the Texans need a RB.

    That is true. It is also rumor season. It is in Green's best interest to have multiple teams bidding for his services. It is just good business.

    Green could leave for a longer term deal or one that is worth more than the Packers. I think he is the top RB free agent available this off season.

    It is with caustion and consideration of motives we should listen to rumors and statements this time of year.

    Wow, thanks for posting.

    I'd hate to loose Green, because I think he can still offer something to this team.

    At the same time, Green might just be putting a statement like that out there to get the Packers to make a move. To catch their attention.
    I think he wants to be here, but who knows what will happen.

    And Lundy. And Dayne. And Dominick Williams (the RB formerly known as Dominick Davis).


    What they need is an O-line.

    When it comes to running backs, Green is getting to be a little old for a "long term" deal.

    It all depends on Green's definition of LONG term...

    At this point in his career, I'd say 3 years is VERY long term. Green has lost that breakaway gesar he had in the open field.

    I'd say Let him go and go get someone younger...

    2 years is the longest I'd sign Green for. It'd also be incentive based.

    We can't lose Green, he's my favorite. If we lost him, I'd be devestated. :(

    In no way is he the top RB free agent...Old and injury prone isnt exactly what teams are looking for.....Rhodes and Peterson are better prospects than him...

    No big deal We need somebody younger, cheaper & more reliable when it comes to fumbling anyway.

    Good luck to you Ahman

    Me too, and so would be Brett. lets hope it doesnt happen. Thats certainly something that Brett Favre did not come back for.

    What does Green have to do with Favre coming back? I doubt Favre gave it a thought. He came back because he thought the team could make the playoffs (and getting those big records could have been on his mind).

    Yes, and it was Brett's Egyptian ancestors that invented Beer. :beersign: The break in the cold weather coming this weekend -- directly attributable to Favre. :packbeer:

    Favre's so tough that he, like an alligator, can fully digest the shell of a turtle! I heard that once back in his drinking, he at an entire homeless homeless on a dare! The guy was pretty thin, but the dare took place pretty much right after lunchtime, so that ain't too bad! :packbeer: To Brett Favre! :packbeer:

    I was thinking more along the lines of Bill Brasky, but to each his own. He's a ten foot tall sonuvabitch who showers in vodka and makes his living by bringing tears to the eyes of each and every Vikings fan.

    Whether we like it or not, Ahman Greene is the best running back we have. There isn't anyone else so we need to sign him. I'd give him more money for a shorter contract, rather than less money for a longer contract. Honestly I can't imagine Houston wanting him, but if they do good luck Ahman

    As much as I like Green, we can replace him (Rhodes, Lynch maybe?), but I am for keeping him. But this isn't the 2002 Ahman Green.
