The Green Bay Packers have claimed NT Howard Green off waivers from the N.Y. Jets and placed LB Brad Jones on injured reserve. The transactions were announced Wednesday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.
Green, a 6-foot-2, 340-pound sixth-year player out of Louisiana State, has played in 51 career games with 12 starts. He entered the NFL as a sixth-round draft choice (190th overall) by Houston in 2002, and went on to play in one game for Baltimore in 2002, 18 games with New Orleans from 2003-04, 18 games with Seattle from 2007-08, and 14 games with the Jets over the past two years, including two contests this season. All 12 of Green's career starts came with New Orleans in 2004. He will wear No. 95.
Jones sustained a shoulder injury this past Sunday vs. Minnesota. He had played in six games with five starts this season.
