Green Officially Retiring With Packers
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Ahman Green is retiring as a Green Bay Packer.

Green, the franchise's all-time leading rusher, was set to make his retirement official at a news conference at Lambeau Field on Thursday night.

Green's most recent stint in the NFL came during the 2009 season, when he returned to the Packers in midseason and played in eight regular season games and one playoff game after being cut by the Houston Texans. Green played last season in the UFL for his hometown Omaha Nighthawks.

Green will be a sideline analyst for the Big Ten network this season. He also is doing some volunteer high school coaching this fall in the Green Bay area.
