But when Greene first heard Steelers on his draft, he did not do well.
“I called,” reminded Greene. “I was at my dining table. Me and my late wife Agnes. I said” Agnes was someone from the Pittsburgh Steelers. They made me number one. “And I didn’t want to go to that team.
” I didn’t know better. All I had to do with was what I had seen on television. The disc. It wasn’t one of my favorite teams. I liked Baltimore Colts, Cleveland Browns and Dallas Cowboys. They won then. “
Greene said he will surely tell the one who Steelers is taking in the first round that things in Pittsburgh are much different than when he was drafted.
” I will surely let him know that this is the best organization in National Football League, Greene says. “It’s good from the beginning to the bottom. That’s what you’re looking for. To have a genuine organization that allows you to succeed and have fun. It’s the bottom line. To succeed and enjoy yourself.”
Greene is coming to join the draft by two other former Steelers, Santonio Holmes who will announce the team’s second round and Brett Keisel will announce the third round-pick.
The messages are shared by the NFL Legends program, which connects some of the game’s greatest players to the latest generation.
NFL Draft will be held April 25-27.
