[Kansas City.com] Trent Green loves Kansas City and wants to stay at least 17 more years, when his baby daughter is out of school.
Green offered Tuesday to help out one of the city’s favorite teams. He said he’s willing to restructure his contract, which counts nearly $8.3 million against the Chiefs’ salary cap.
“If that’s something that helps the team,” Green said, “and we can get it done to get more guys signed or to get more cap room or bring in more free agents, yeah, I’m willing to do that.”
Across town, Chiefs president/general manager Carl Peterson said he was touched by the gesture. But he probably won’t be taking his quarterback up on it.
“I’m not worried, because I know what we have to do to get there (under the cap),” Peterson said. “And these plans have been made for not just a couple of weeks but a couple of months.”
“I will tell you that some players will be released based on performance and salary. That’s something that happens each year, and that’s part of our business. I don’t know if it will be quite that big of a surprise, but it’ll possibly happen with a starting player or two, so that will always be a surprise.”
