Former Green Bay Packers running back Ahman Green signed a 1-year contract today and will be on the practice field with the team.
Green had a tryout with the Packers on Monday. He’s the teams second all-time leading rusher, playing 7 seasons in Green Bay (2000-06), which included four consecutive Pro Bowl appearances (2001-04).
Green began his NFL career in Seattle (1998-99) and also played two seasons in Houston (2007-08).
With 8,162 career rushing yards with the Packers, Green needs 46 more yards to surpass No. 1 Jim Taylor (8,207) and become the franchise’s all-time leading rusher.
To make room on the roster, the Packers placed running back DeShawn Wynn on injured reserve.
The Packers are back to work today, preparing for Sunday’s game in Cleveland against the Browns.
