The Bears recently inquired about retired QB Trent Green, but Green intends to stay retired.
Green, a veteran of the Mike Martz system, is 40 and now works for NFL Network and Westwood One Radio. "We had some conversations about it, but Trent's been engrossed in broadcasting," said agent Jim Steiner. "It's time to stay right where he is." The Bears will look elsewhere for a backup with Caleb Hanie injured. Dan LeFevour threw five picks in Monday's practice. Mon, Aug 16, 2010 07:40:00 PM

Retired QB Trent Green said there is no possibility that he will sign with the Bears.

Green confirmed that the Bears approached him about their backup job, but after chewing on it Green decided to keep his family in Kansas City. The Bears will continue their hunt for a backup quarterback that is familiar with Mike Martz's system. Marc Bulger remains a logical choice if he is willing to accept a strict backup role. Josh McCown has also been mentioned.

The Bears recently spoke to retired Trent Green about signing on as their backup quarterback, sources tell the Chicago Sun-Times.

Green officially retired in June of last season and has a couple TV analyst gigs lined up. Still, the Bears are interested in bringing in a veteran that knows Mike Martz's system and the situation remains "fluid," according to the Sun-Times. Josh McCown has also been mentioned as a possibility for the job.

Trent Green has announced his retirement from football.

Green, who turns 39 next month, was originally selected by the Chargers in the eighth round of the 1993 draft. Concussion-prone in the twilight of his career, Green made his mark with the Chiefs early this decade. Under Dick Vermeil, he was one of the top quarterbacks in the league, averaging 25 TDs and over 4,000 yards from 2002-2004. He finishes with 162 TDs and 28,475 yards in 120 career games. Green plans to pursue a career in broadcasting.

Free agent Trent Green, released by the Rams on Wednesday, says he wants to continue his playing career.

Green, 38, compared his situation to Kerry Collins and Kurt Warner's. Green isn't nearly as good as Warner, however, and he has no chance of finding receivers like Warner's to throw to. He'd also be very hard pressed to find a defense, offensive line, and running game as good as Collins' to make him look better. Retirement appears to be Green's best option at this point.

Rams released QB Trent Green.

The move saves $2 million in cash and $1.3 million in cap room. St. Louis had no competition to sign Green last spring and he'll be a less attractive option than fellow aging free agents Damon Huard and Jon Kitna. Green, 39 in July, is a good bet to retire after 16 pro seasons. St. Louis could now pursue Jeff Garcia as a backup. Garcia knows the new coaching staff well.

The Rams made their second quarterback change of the game in the fourth quarter Sunday, inserting Brock Berlin in place of a totally ineffective Trent Green.

Other than experience (which Jeff George has too), Green offers no good qualities. He completed only 16-of-30 passes for 219 yards and four picks after Marc Bulger (head) was pulled on St. Louis' second possession. Green took four sacks in roughly three quarters of play. The Rams could go with Berlin in Week 13 against Miami, if only because their other options are terrible.

Rams coach Jim Haslett revealed that Trent Green tweaked the elbow on his throwing shoulder in Week 10 against the Jets.

It won't prevent him from being active in Week 11 to back up Marc Bulger. At this point, it isn't clear which of the Rams' QBs gives them their best chance to win, but St. Louis is sticking with the more expensive one for now.

Trent Green relieved Marc Bulger at halftime in Week 10 against the Jets and completed just 5-of-10 passes for 70 yards and an interception.

One of Green's passes hit umpire Bill Schuster in the head, which should tell you something about Green's fantasy "upside." He finished the day with a 33.3 quarterback rating. Bulger probably will start in Week 11 against the 49ers; coach Jim Haslett may have just pulled him because St. Louis was down by 40 after two quarters.

Trent Green is expected to go back to the bench following the Rams' dismissal of coach Scott Linehan.

Green wasn't awful in his Week 4 start, but looked rusty after barely taking any preseason snaps and struggled with accuracy at times. He may very well see another start before the season is up, but can safely be dropped.

Trent Green completed 17-of-32 passes for 236 yards and an interception in the Rams' Week 4 loss to Buffalo.

Green didn't get concussed, which qualifies as a plus, but he didn't get the ball to his receivers consistently either and displayed happy feet at times. He was sacked twice. The Rams are on a bye in Week 5.

NFL Network's Adam Schefter reports that Trent Green will take over as the Rams' starting quarterback.

No word if the change is heath related, but we doubt it. Green is not going to save your fantasy season; we'd rather have Kerry Collins. Green knows Al Saunders' system, but he's been a below average quarterback since taking a vicious hit in 2006 and the problems in St. Louis go beyond their signal calling.
Tue, Sep 23, 2008 12:20:00 PM

The Rams announced Trent Green will start the team's preseason finale against the Chiefs as they plan to rest starter Marc Bulger.

Green has played sparingly this preseason as the Rams try to implement a new offense under coordinator Al Saunders. He has little fantasy value as long as Bulger remains healthy.
Thu, Aug 28, 2008 12:10:00 PM

Rams agreed to terms with Trent Green on a three-year, $8.9 million contract, according to NFL Network's Adam Schefter. The deal includes a $2.1 million signing bonus.

It's a nice story, but Green isn't an upgrade from Gus Frerotte. Green knows offensive coordinator Al Saunders' system, but he's suffered serious concussions the last two years. Just as importantly, his accuracy and pocket presence have declined rapidly. This puts more pressure on the Rams to keep Marc Bulger healthy.

Trent Green spoke with the Packers Friday, but his agent doesn't expect the conversations to go any further.

The Packers say they are just starting their search for a backup, which is a nice way of telling Green no. Green's agent has been trying to drum up for business, but he's going to have to decide to take an offer from the Rams or Saints shortly.
