Still Green

"I decided it was premature to retire," says Green, who could easily be the age of some of his teammates' parents.

He was all set to retire last year. But hold on – the Redskins' DARRELL GREEN has changed his mind!

After extending his NFL record last season of an interception in 19 consecutive seasons, Green, the oldest cornerback (42) ever to play

in the league – this year will top JACKIE SLATER for most seasons with one club. The league's five oldest active players, and those in

history who spent the most seasons with one club:
