Packers Daily Links: Ahman Green Wants NFL Comeback

Packers Daily Links: Ahman Green Wants NFL Comeback

Despite being cut by the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League in 2011, running back Ahman Green still wants to play in the NFL. "I've got at least five years left in me to play football," Green told Fox Sports Wisconsin. Green is the Packers' all-time leading rusher, had several Pro Bowl years with them from 2000 to 2006 and returned once more for the playoff run in 2009. He hasn't played in the NFL since. To Green's credit, he said he's got to move on with his life if an opportunity doesn't happen. It's difficult to envision one would.

Defensive lineman Tony Hargrove attended the grievance hearing by the NFL players union against the league on his behalf, according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com. "There was no ruling and there are no further hearings scheduled for this particular grievance, which centers on whether Commissioner Roger Goodell has the power to punish players for the so-called bounty program since it occured prior to the current labor agreement signed last August," writes Rosenthal. There was no indication when a ruling will be made.

More information on Hargrove's grievance, another hearing on May 30 and arbitrator Shyam Das appears at Packer Report.

Mike Florio talks about Tony Hargrove at length in a video at ProFootballTalk.com.

An interview with head coach Mike McCarthy on Sirius XM satellite radio on Wednesday was transcribed by Jason Wilde of ESPNWisconsin.com. "In the interview, McCarthy praised fourth-round safety Jerron McMillian; said seventh-round quarterback B.J. Coleman 'definitely has NFL arm talent;' reiterated that tackling and ball security will be major emphases in training camp; vowed not to put too much on NFL MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers after his phenomenal 2011 season; and sounded as if the team did not anticipate an eight-game suspension for defensive end Anthony Hargrove for his role in the New Oreleans Saints bounty scandal," writes Wilde. It's good to hear the positive first impression McMillian made on the head coach. And I would assume the Packers knew a suspension for Hargrove was a possibility, maybe just not an eight-game suspension.

Cornerback Charles Woodson gave an interview to the Detroit Free Press in advance of an event he helps host in Ann Arbor, Mich. where he attended college, a golf tournament and gala dinner to raise funds for the Mott Children's Hospital. Among other topics, Woodson talked about Junior Seau's suicide and the potential effects of head trauma in the NFL. "We all understand it's a part of what we do," Woodson is quoted as saying. "With Junior Seau, what happened with him, nobody really knows what happened at this point, why he did it or the reasons. But I think with what happened to Junior, it puts people on high alert, guys who play the game. For myself, I think about the many years I (have) played the game, the many hits I've given and you've taken." Woodson also talked about how he enjoyed watching Brady Hoke's team at the University of Michigan last year.

Former Packer Antonio Freeman returned to Wisconsin on Tuesday to attend a girl's high school soccer game in Janesville on behalf of the Go Pink Initiative that raises fund for breast cancer research and helps survivors. “When I have time to come back to the state of Wisconsin, I try to come back by way of the Go Pink breast cancer awareness fund raising,” Freeman told the Janesville Gazette. “It’s good to come back and have a warm feeling, and be part of a worthy cause that actually gives away a check to surviving breast cancer patients.’’

Wide receiver Donald Driver answered questions about Dancing With The Stars for the Los Angeles Times.

A feature on Charlie Peprah, in which he talks about the starting safety position, appears at the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

Rookie defensive lineman Mike Daniels talks about his injury with Fox Sports Wisconsin.

Two columns on Sam Shields and cornerbacks Charles Woodson and Casey Hayward are written by Adam Czech at AllGreenBayPackers.com.

Earth to Ahman: you've had a good career; let it go. Work on that "move on to something else" part, and we'll see you in the GBP Hall of Fame.

I always though that Ahman was one of the best if not the best Packer in the early 2000's. That said I believe he is 35 and hasn't played in the NFL since '09. With a lot of people considering Ryan Grant an "older running-back" who is barely getting a sniff in free-agency, I don't see how Green believes there would be any kind of market for his services. Retire with dignity Ahman.

"I've got at least five years left in me to play football," - Ahman, retire and get your head checked out.

If anyone can do it, it would be Green. But he can't.
