Nearly two years after his death http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/adrian-peterson-jersey ,
Dennis Green is getting paid for services rendered to a long-defunct football

Via Dale Kasler of the Sacramento Bee, Green’s widow has settled a
claim for unpaid wages from the UFL’s Sacramento Mountain Lions.

Green received $1 million for the 2010 season, and the team increased his pay
to $1.5 million for 2011. But he received only $510,000.

Late in the 2011 season Zay Jones
, Green sued the team for unpaid wages. He coached the final
two games of the campaign despite not being paid.

So why keep coaching for free?

“Athletes and coaches don’t quit,” Green said in 2016.

Green and, subsequently, his estate didn’t quit pursuing justice. It took
time and a variety of proceedings Peyton

, but Green’s widow eventually forced team
owner聽William Hambrecht to pay up.

The amount of the settlement was confidential. Here’s hoping that Green’s
estate will receive as close to 100 cents on the dollar as possible for what he
was owed.

Green, who died in July 2016, coached the Vikings and Cardinals. He took the
Vikings to a pair of NFC championship games.

The New York Jets have signed
veteran free agent defensive lineman Chris Jones, who spent last season on
injured reserve.

To make room for Jones http://www.greenbaypackersteamonline.com/kevin-king-jersey ,
the Jets waived defensive lineman Claude Pelon on Tuesday.

Jones was a sixth-round pick of Houston in 2013 out of Bowling Green. He has
also spent time with Tampa Bay, New England, Miami and San Francisco.

In 28 games, including 22 starts Deion Sanders
, with the Patriots during the 2013 and `14 seasons, Jones
had nine sacks. He split the 2016 season with the Dolphins and 49ers, but was
placed on IR last September by San Francisco and became a free agent in

Pelon has spent parts of the past two seasons with the Jets after signing as
an undrafted free agent in 2016 out of USC. He played in one game last season
and had two tackles.
