    Agreed. We need a 3rd down conversion machine. I'd love to see him here.

    Green has basically been the back bone of that craptastical jets O. He's hard nose. Can't complain about that pick up honestly.

    If this is true, it would be an amazing signing...Shonn Greene isn't anything fancy, but he's exactly what we need. A big, cheap RB that can pound that rock in when we need it. The only reason his stats fell off as a Jet is because their passing game was so horrible and they had a pretty shotty o-line. He's an above average power back, and if we can get him cheap this will be a great signing.

    I'm not sure he's going to be all that cheap. He might end up being one of the more expensive FA RBs -- especially since he'll be a backup. It's not like teams are rushing to sign any of the other guys out there.

    MAX...and that's a great deal for a player like this. We haven't overpaid a player yet, so I highly doubt we overpay a change of pace back.

    Yea I think that's a solid pay check. Prolly front load a bit of it so he has more reason to come. 5/6 mil this year if we can spare it.

    I'm not sure why he would come here in the prime of his career, coming off back to back 1000 yard seasons.

    He's not going to get near the touches he got in New York here or most other places. That said I would not mind the signing.
