As long as Green can stay healthy, he will be a nice addition for the Jets alongside Chris Ivory.
Green ran for 464 yards on 135 carries last season in Green Bay.

SO CLOSE, YET SO FAR
When the Packers cut Graham Harrell, it appeared Vince Young had locked up a backup quarterback job. Instead, the team released him.
On August 30 it was widely believed that Vince Young had locked up the job as back up to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. A day later when he was let go people were surprised to say the least.
They might be even more surprised now that the Packers general manager Ted Thompson is taking the blame for Young's exit.

After all was said, much was in fact done. The New York Jets are moving onto a new era of football at the Meadowlands.
The team announced it’s not giving the starting nod to the guy who signed a $56M extension last offseason, but to its dynamic rookie Geno Smith.
Indeed Smith threw three picks in the third preseason game against the Giants, and has looked rookie-like at times,...
After releasing the immortal Graham Harrell, the New York Jets signed substandard field general Brady Quinn on Monday. Clipped by the Seattle Seahawks last weekend, the 28-year-old Quinn is guaranteed to earn at least the veteran’s minimum of $715,000 if he’s still a Jet on Saturday. Taken out of Notre Dame by the Cleveland Browns 22nd overall in 2007, the journeyman has now...
