Bears Called Former Chiefs QB Trent Green "Three Or Four Weeks Ago"

So Carl Peterson got hit pretty hard around these parts over the years for bringing in big name, over-the-hill quarterbacks to make a splash. Well, the Bears pulled a Peterson about "three or four weeks ago", according to Mike Mulligan of the Chicago Sun-Times, contacting former Chiefs quarterback Trent Green about playing again.

"A source close to Green said Green talked with the Bears three or four weeks ago and decided to remain in retirement, but the situation might be fluid," Mulligan reported.

Wow.

The connection of course is Mike Martz who was the Rams coordinator in the late 90s and early 2000s when Green was there. The Bears have been reportedly seeking a veteran backup for Jay Cutler.

Green left the Chiefs in 2007 after concussion-related injuries. He went to the Rams in 2008 where he started three games. 

He was out of the NFL last year and turns 40 in July.

It was recently announced that Trent Green would call the Chiefs preseason games so, for now, he appears to be committed to that. But notice Mulligan said the situation could be "fluid."
