The PALM BEACH POST reports today that the Dolphins are giving serious thought to bringing back quarterback Trent Green for the 2008 season.
PBP: “Dolphins football operations chief Bill Parcells and General Manager Jeff Ireland have reached out to Green to express their interest in his return.“
Green sat out most of last season after getting concussed (again) in a game against the Houston Texans on Oct. 7. He had suffered previous concussion problems with the Chiefs, and his departure from the Fins this season was viewed as de facto retirement.
Green himself has since been strangely enthusiastic about the possibility, even before the news today. And his agent Jim Steiner echoed that sentiment in the Post report.
Steiner: “There have been conversations about Trent returning, pending his health issues. The conversations are just getting started, and they will be ongoing for quite some time. (Green has) got a huge passion for the game, and he’s passing his medical tests 100 percent.”
We’re a little dubious about the possibility. As is, we would imagine, Miami Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor.
Taylor told SPORTS ILLUSTRATED last offseason that Green “better not get hit. One big hit, and he could be scrambled eggs.”
