Trent Green’s time in Kansas City could soon be coming to an end.
The Chiefs have granted the veteran quarterback’s request to seek employment elsewhere. If a trade cannot be worked out, KC made it clear Tuesday that he would be welcomed back if he restructured his contract and agreed to take a pay cut.
Under his current deal, Green is scheduled to earn a base salary of $7.2 million in 2007.
If he were to return, it is expected he would be forced to compete for the starting job. The Chiefs re-signed Damon Huard last week and drafted Brodie Croyle in the third round of last year’s draft.
In other Chiefs news, the team signed free-agent linebacker Napoleon Harris to a six-year contract that will pay the five-year veteran $24 million dollars. Harris spent the last two seasons in Minnesota.
