Plenty of incentive for Green

The Packer Pundit
If Green Bay running back Ahman Green can get just 12 rushing yards Sunday night at Chicago, he'll have 1,000 this season. That would be his sixth 1,000-yard rushing season as a Packer, a team record. He would surpass Jim Taylor, who had five 1,000-yard rushing seasons in his Green Bay career. When Green signed a one-year contract before this season, one of the incentives was an additional $500,000 if he could get 950 rushing yards. He's already earned that. But there is another incentive: If he has a big game against the Bears and rushes for at least 162 yards, he'll have 1,150 for the year. And that will net him another $500,000.
