ESPN Boston reports DL Jarvis Green is going to test free agency this offseason. Green, 31, said he would re-sign with the Patriots but wants to see what the market has in store for him when the free agency period begins March 5. "Definitely this year, I'm going to experience the market," said Green. "I think for any player in their NFL career they need to experience that, and this will be my first time. I had the chance five years ago but I re-signed with the team, so this has been different for me, and it's been cool not being obligated to anyone but my family, my wife [Rakia] and kids [Terrence, Já Nya, and Toi]." Green has been a Patriot since the 2002 season after being drafted by the team with the 126th overall pick out of LSU.
Said Green on playing in New England: "Playing in a championship program, being with the Patriots, things I've learned here I could take with me -- the winning attitude, knowing how to win," he said. "That could go anywhere, and I think teams look for that in the quality of a player."
