OMAHA, NEB. (AP) - Running back Ahman Green says he has agreed to play in the CFL next season for the defending Grey Cup champion Montreal Alouettes.

The 34-year-old Green is the all-time leading rusher for the Green Bay Packers. He played last season for the Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League.

Green said Monday that Dahrran Diedrick, who has played four-plus seasons for Montreal, put him in touch with Alouettes management. Both Green and Diedrick played at Nebraska.

The CFL season begins in June, and Green said he’s hopeful an NFL team will give him another opportunity.

Green rushed for 9,025 yards for three NFL teams from 1998-2009. He averaged 3.7 yards a carry in eight games for the Nighthawks.
