Trent Green Retires

Quarterback Trent Green has retired after 15 seasons.

Green, 38, is a former starter for the Washington Redskins, St. Louis Rams, Kansas City Chiefs and Miami Dolphins.

He threw for 28,475 yards and 162 touchdowns.

Green reportedly plans to go into broadcasting.

"I feel this is finally the right time," Green told Fox in comments that appeared on the network's website. "I've talked about it with [his family] for a while, especially with the concussions over the last few years. We all felt it was the time to do it."

Green played in three games, making one start, for the Rams last season.

He first became a starter with the Redskins in 1998 and probably would have remained with the team. But the estate of late owner Jack Kent Cooke was the process of selling the franchise and the club's front office was unable to negotiate a contract extension with Green, who was eligible for free agency. Green ended up signing with the Rams as a free agent and was to be the starter in St. Louis before suffering a preseason knee injury that gave a chance for Kurt Warner to take over and become a league most valuable player for the "Greatest Show on Turf" offense.

Green moved on to Kansas City and had five standout seasons for the Chiefs, topping 4,000 passing yards in three different seasons.
