Green, an adoptee, became his high-school class co-valedictorian, and went on to qualify as a lawyer and first-round draft choice of the Atlanta Falcons football team.

After retiring from playing he became a sports commentator and author, writing three novels, an expos of professional football (The Dark Side of the Game) and the story of his search for his birth parents. He was moved to search after breaking up with a girlfriend whose own mother was a birth mother. The search took seven years and temporarily alienated him from his adoptive parents.
