Dolphins Want Green To Return

                            Miami Dolphins quarterback Trent Green 

Despite Miami Dolphins quarterback Trent Green and his recent health issues – namely the concussions – the team’s front office want Green to return for the 2008 season, according to Tim Graham of the Palm Beach Post.  However, there are issues to be resolved at Green’s end.  Green still has not made up his mind whether he wants to resume a football career which has been interrupted the past two seasons – again, by concussions – by injuries; Green, who wants to enter the broadcasting field once his playing days are over, spent the playoffs commentating for ESPN and NFL Network.

It is not clear what role Green would have if he returned to the team, whether as a starter or as a mentor; regardless of what role Green would have, he would probably have to accept a reduction in pay.  Green is due $2.8 million and $3.5 million the next 2 years under his current 3-year, $12 million contract that he signed last year.  I would expect that a decision would have to be made relatively soon, in light of the Senior Bowl coming up and also further preparations for the 2008 NFL Draft that will be made, as well.  Personally, I do not expect him to return; 2 concussions in one season should be the “wake-up” call (pun unintended) that he needs to make a sound and rational decision.
