Mike Mulligan of the Chicago Sun Times is reporting that Bears GM, Mike Martz, contacted former Chiefs QB, Trent Green about coming back to football to serve as a backup to Jay Cutler.
The report states that Green declined the offer but that “The situation might be fluid.”
We all remember the horrifying hit Trent took in the 2006 opener against the Cincinnati Bengals. Trent was never the same and dealt with concussion issues for what remained of his career.
Trent is looking to get in to broadcasting and recently signed on to do the Chiefs preseason games.
Trent Green is one of my favorite Chiefs of all time. I was very concerned about his health when he continued to play after sustaining a couple of concussions and I was relieved when he finally retried. As much as I would love to see Trent make a Bret Favre like comeback (even though Favre never really left) I hope he stays retired. His best days are behind him and I would hate to see any serious harm come to him.
