Bears Reach Out Again to Trent Green

With back-up quarterback Caleb Hanie out with a shoulder injury, Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports the Chicago Bears have once again reached out to retired quarterback Trent Green.

Green is familiar with the Mike Martz offense, and would make sense as a veteran back-up behind starter Jay Cutler. The Bears contacted Green in May about coming back for another season, but he denied interest in resuming his playing career.

Three months later, Green's answer to the overtures remain the same.

"We had some conversations about it, but Trent's been engrossed in broadcasting," Jim Steiner, Green's agent, said. "It just didn't work out."

Green completed 60.6% of his 3,740 pass attempts for 28,475 yards, with 162 touchdowns against 114 interceptions for a passer rating of 86.0. Green started 16 games and went to the second of his two Pro Bowls as recently as 2005, but age and injuries, including multiple concussions, limited his effectiveness from 2006-08, and prompted his retirement last June.
