Yea he isn't worth much. He could be a good third down back. I think it really depends on Ron Dayne and if he re-signs or not.

believe me ron dayne is gone. the giants dont want anything to do with one of the biggest disappointments in franchise history. im still not completely sold on william green anyway. the giants should maybe consider drafting RB/FB Brandon Jacobs out of Southern Illinois, he is huge and runs a 4.59 40. if available in the 3rd round, he would be an excellent pickup for the giants.

I always felt like FB's were the answer to short yardage situations. They aren't used much though.

I've been hearing a 5th or 6th rounder.

Reason being, he is one imfraction of the NFL substance abuse policy away from a one year suspension. One questionable whiz, and he's gone for a year.

The Browns are lucky to get anything for him, and I would think they would jump on a late pick like that just to clean house of all the bad eggs.

i dont think u guys should go after green... you're gonna need a player who can succeed where dayne failed... u need a bigger back, let him bust em up, tire em out... and then let tiki run right by them... a new "thunder and lightening".... perhaps michael pittman?... he'll bust somebody in the mouth...

Old rumors die hard.

-- Giants Make Trade Offer to Acquire Green --
Fri Apr 8, 2005 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN's Len Pasquarelli reports the New York Giants reportedly have made a trade offer to the Cleveland Browns for former first-round RB William Green.


Anyone hear anything about this lately?

yeah, green really reminds me too much of dayne: first rounder who is a flat out disappointment. i really think its stupid to trade a draft pick, considering the jints only have 4. id only do this trade if it involved trading someone on the team who is a backup somewhere.

Green Ran for almost 900 yards in his rookie season and single handedly carried us into the playoffs with over 700 in his last 6 games. He fell off hard core bc butch davis cut two of our best lineman in Walabough and Payne just to turn around and draft Faine who is another one of his bust. I'm sorry Green and Suggs we're 1&2 in negative plays last season you can't be that bad to have both of our backs always in the back field Butch and his huge ego refused to fix the o line bc thats what the fans wanted and he got out backs killed before they had a chance. However Green does have a bad problem with fumbling.

We fixed Tiki's problem with fumbling so I don't see why we can't fix Green's. Right now I would love to see Green on our team because that means we can draft somewhere other than HB. I want a DE/CB/LB.
