Jets released RB Alex Green.
The Jets have dumped both Green and Daryl Richardson, leaving only Bilal Powell behind Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory. Green, a third-round pick of the Packers in 2011, has a pitiful 3.42 YPC average on his 149 career carries. Sat, Aug 30, 2014 12:08:00 PM

The Jets confirmed RB Alex Green has not been cut.

Green hinted in a tweet he was cut following the Jets' acquisition of RB Daryl Richardson, but on Saturday the Jets confirmed he was still with the team. With seven running backs currently on New York's roster, Green is unlikely to be a Jet when the 2014 season begins. He may not even last until training camp.

Jets RB Alex Green rushed five times for 14 yards in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Bills.

The Jets ran a season-high 41 times on Buffalo, and Green saw snaps because Chris Ivory suffered an early-game hamstring injury and did not return. If Ivory sits out at Tennessee in Week 4, Green could get another five or so touches.

Jets claimed RB Alex Green off waivers from the Packers.

Green averaged just 3.4 YPC on 135 attempts last season, and he didn't show much this preseason. The former third-round pick just hasn't looked the same since tearing his ACL in his rookie year of 2011. Green will slide in as the Jets' No. 3 back, ahead of Kahlil Bell and behind Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell.

Packers waived RB Alex Green.

Even with DuJuan Harris (knee) out for the year and fourth-round rookie Johnathan Franklin struggling mightily, Green can't stick. The former third-round pick couldn't return to form after an October 2011 ACL tear, managing a paltry 3.43 YPC on 135 rushes last season. For now, the Packers will roll with only James Starks, third-down protector John Kuhn and Franklin behind potential workhorse Eddie Lacy. It's rumored they could add KR/RB Joe McKnight off the street.

Packers RB Alex Green "continues to hear his name discussed in trade talks."

Even with Eddie Lacy inactive, Green played with the second and third teams in Friday's preseason opener, managing 16 yards on seven runs. With Lacy and Johnathan Franklin locked into roster spots, the Packers may only end up keeping one of Green and James Starks. They could conceivably part with both.

Alex Green has handled Packers first-team tailback reps with Eddie Lacy nursing a hamstring tweak.

James Starks has been second in line, with rookie Johnathan Franklin holding down third-string duties. The Packers appear to view Green and Starks as superior early-down backs to Franklin, who looks ticketed for a situational passing-back role. Green and Starks are quite possibly vying for one roster spot.

According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Alex Green and James Starks have "been more impressive" than rookies Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin early in Packers camp.

We wouldn't read too much into it. Veteran courtesy has had Green and Starks running with the first team, where it's easier to stand out. Lacy and Franklin weren't drafted to sit the bench behind two backs who've had plenty of chances and done little with them. Provided they don't face-plant in preseason, Lacy and Franklin are still the best bets to lead Green Bay in touches.

Alex Green opened training camp as the Packers' starting running back Friday, but James Starks took the first rep Saturday.

The Packers are going to work all of their backs into the mix with the first-team offense, so we wouldn't read much into this at all. Green -- who ran with the "ones" throughout the spring -- and Starks are likely getting the nod ahead of rookies Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin based solely on experience.

One NFL personnel boss believes the Packers may shop Alex Green toward the end of training camp.

They won't be able to expect much for the 2011 third-round pick, who through two NFL seasons has suffered a torn ACL and averaged a paltry 3.44 yards per carry. GM Ted Thompson would have to be willing to accept a late-round pick for Green. "They have trade material," said the personnel chief. "Green, not (James) Starks." Starks is more likely to be released outright.

Packers.com considers rookies Johnathan Franklin and Eddie Lacy the only Packers running backs locked into roster spots.

Reporter Mike Spofford also lists DuJuan Harris as someone who "excited" the coaching staff last season. In other words, Alex Green and James Starks are likely competing for one roster spot, if that. Green says he learned a lot during his dicey return from a torn ACL last season. "My aiming point through the holes, the reads, watching the safety rotations. Just slowing the game down a little bit and letting the game come to me and being patient." Green and Starks are both facing an uphill battle.

Alex Green started and finished OTAs as the Packers' No. 1 running back.

May and June depth-chart decisions are often made on experience. While we wouldn't completely give up hope of Green developing into a plus NFL contributor, there's little doubt he's a long shot to open the season as Green Bay's starter. Green remains in the mix of a five-way competition that also includes Eddie Lacy, DuJuan Harris, Johnathan Franklin, and James Starks.

Alex Green says he was never 100 percent last season after returning from his October 2011 ACL tear.

Green was worn down to the point that he was scratched for Green Bay's Divisional Round loss to the 49ers. "I came back, I got close to it, but once I got close, then I had a couple setbacks," Green said. "I was never really quite where I wanted to be, but I made great strides in the off-season. I'm definitely getting ready for this year." Perhaps as low as fourth on the depth chart, Green could be a candidate for trade or release in training camp.

Per the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, RB Alex Green "remains mostly out of the mix" in the Packers' backfield.

Green is no threat to feature back DuJuan Harris or backup Ryan Grant. He's not hurt, but he's "worn down" thanks in part to last year's ACL reconstruction. The Journal-Sentinel says "the coaches feel he hasn't looked as explosive as earlier in the season."
Thu, Jan 10, 2013 09:11:00 AM

Packers OC Tom Clements insists RB Alex Green still has a role in the offense.

Green hasn't played a single snap the last two games. If he has a role, it's to be ready in case new starter DuJuan Harris goes down with an injury. With James Starks (knee) close to returning, Green could end up tumbling to fourth on the depth chart.
