KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Speculation that quarterback Trent Green might not be back in Kansas City next season increased Tuesday, when the Chiefs and Green’s agent said the former Pro Bowler would begin exploring trade options.
Agent Jim Steiner said the team is seeking to restructure Green’s contract, which will pay him $7.2 million next season. The Chiefs are also entertaining offers for Green, who missed eight games last season with a severe concussion.
“We’re going to look and see what his options are,” Steiner said. “We’re going to do that.”
Steiner said several teams have shown interest in Green, who will be 37 by the start of training camp. But Steiner declined to name the teams.
“We’ll take care of that in the next few days,” Steiner said.
