The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel expects the Packers' "first order of business" this offseason to be finding pass rushers.
Dom Capers got no backfield penetration from the right end rotation of Howard Green, C.J. Wilson, Jarius Wynn, and Mike Neal or the right outside linebacker rotation of Erik Walden, Frank Zombo, and Brad Jones. Green and Walden will likely be allowed to walk as free agents. Safety and cornerback are also areas of need. Thu, Jan 26, 2012 10:11:00 PM

The Packers expect DL Howard Green to return next season, softening the blow of Cullen Jenkins' departure via free agency.

Though he was released for the 12th time during the 2010 season, Green was starting for Green Bay by the playoffs. He's under contract for one more year at $765,000, offering depth up front along with C.J. Wilson and Jarius Wynn. The Packers could also be getting wild cards Justin Harrell and Johnny Jolly back for one more season.

Packers NT Howard Green has moved into the starting lineup the past two games against the Falcons and Bears.

After Green weighed in at 375 pounds, he was cut by the Jets in October for the 12th time by his 10th different team. He's now "down" to 350. Coordinator Dom Capers has essentially gone with three nose tackles up front in his 3-4 scheme, allowing the linebackers and safeties to roam free.
Wed, Feb 2, 2011 10:15:00 AM

Packers claimed NT Howard Green off waivers from the Jets.

The Packers have carried just one true nose tackle (starter B.J. Raji) all season, so the 31-year-old veteran Green finally gives them some depth.
Wed, Oct 27, 2010 05:17:00 PM

Jets waived NT Howard Green.

Green played in 12 games with the Jets last season, but he's been on a roster yo-yo this time around.
Tue, Oct 26, 2010 03:32:00 PM

Jets re-signed NT Howard Green.

Green was let go last week so the Jets could steal Trevor Pryce from the Ravens. He's back to provide depth along the interior of the defensive line.
Mon, Oct 4, 2010 11:37:00 AM

Jets released NT Howard Green.

Green is losing his roster spot to veteran Trevor Pryce, but he's expected to be brought back on Monday. Perhaps the Ravens will lure him to Baltimore.
Thu, Sep 30, 2010 01:33:00 PM

Jets re-signed free agent NT Howard Green to a two-year contract.

Green, who appeared in 12 games for the Jets last season, will provide depth inside with Kris Jenkins (knee) out for the season. He'll back up new starter Sione Pouha.
Wed, Sep 15, 2010 10:29:00 AM

Redskins signed NT Howard Green to a one-year contract.

The Skins are stockpiling wide bodies as they move to a 3-4 scheme. Green, who goes 6-foot-2 and 320 pounds, turned 31 in January. He dressed for 12 games with the Jets last season and recorded 23 tackles with no sacks.
Mon, Apr 19, 2010 03:37:00 PM

The Redskins are hosting free agent DT Howard Green on Wednesday.

Green, 31, has experience playing nose in a 3-4 defense like the one the Skins are installing, but is backup-caliber. Washington is making contingency plans in case a taker for Albert Haynesworth is found on draft weekend.
Wed, Apr 14, 2010 11:57:00 AM

Jets re-signed DT Howard Green.

Green was just released over the weekend, but he's needed for depth up front after the loss of Kris Jenkins (torn ACL).
Tue, Oct 20, 2009 04:12:00 PM

Jets released DT Howard Green.

Green was cut to make room for Danny Woodhead. He could end up back on the squad once Jerricho Cotchery and Brad Smith get healthy.
Sat, Oct 17, 2009 04:58:00 PM

Jets signed DT Howard Green to a one-year contract.

Green, who spent last year buried as a reserve in Seattle, will likely push Sione Pouha to be Kris Jenkins' backup on the nose. Green offers good size (6'2/320) and knows the scheme after a stint with Rex Ryan in Baltimore.
Thu, Mar 12, 2009 03:42:00 PM

The Jets have shown interest in free agent DT Howard Green.

Green, who would play nose in Rex Ryan's 3-4 scheme, is listed at 6'2/320. He won't return to Seattle, which is installing more of a one-gap system.
Fri, Mar 6, 2009 11:33:00 AM

Seahawks signed DT Howard Green.

Green, who was with the Vikings in training camp, has not played in the regular season since 2004. He was added following the season-ending knee injury to DL Chuck Darby. Rookie Brandon Mebane will start at nose tackle in place of Darby.
