Someone Tell Trent Green to Retire

As SPORTSbyBROOKS aptly wrote, from the really bad idea department comes the news that the Dolphins would welcome Trent Green back to the team this year. And if your QBs were Cleo Lemon and John Beck, you’d probably do the same thing.

The agent for Dolphins quarterback Trent Green said that vice president of football operations Bill Parcells has expressed an interest in bringing back the oft-injured veteran.

“He has to have the motivation to come back and he also has the health issue,” Steiner said. “Trent has to determine whether the upside is worth the downside.”

To be fair, I said Tedy Bruschi should have retired as soon as I read about his stroke. Obviously I was wrong about that because had Bruschi followed my advice, he wouldn’t be playing in the Super Bowl. I don’t know if Trent thinks he might be able to reach the Super Bowl, but I’m guessing he’ll have trouble hanging it up if he still thinks he can be a good quarterback in the league. Let’s be real: as Solomon Wilcots said, Trent Green is a candlelight now — one blow and he’s out. Just retire Trent, retire for your own good.

    When it comes to many free agents, I always ask this: Will this guy get us into the playoffs or super bowl? If the answer is NO then don’t waste your money on him. There are exceptions like young CBs and whatnot, you always sign those.
