Americus - Americus native Victor Green re-signed with the New York Jets Tuesday in order that he can retire with the team he played for nine NFL seasons.
Green made the Jets as an undrafted free agent out of Austin Peay in 1993.
By the middle of the 1994 season, he was the Jets starting strong safety and in 1996 Victor Green set the Jets team record for most tackles in a season.
Of the 1000 tackles he made in his NFL career, 725 were solo.
Green also had 25 career interceptions.
Though Victor Green left the big apple to play for the Patriots in 2002 and the next year in New Orleans, Jet fans still voted him to their four decade all-star team in 2003.
