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.
