The Montreal Alouettes have agreed to terms with former Green Bay Packers star Ahman Green, fueling speculation the Als may be about to part ways with potential free agent and 2009 Grey Cup MVP Avon Cobourne.

The club isn't expected to announce Green's signing until March due to his current United Football League (UFL) contract which is set to expire.

Green will be joining fullback Diedrick Dahrran, a former Nebraska Cornhuskers alumni, on the Als' roster although Diedrick was redshirted in 1998, the same year Green was drafted by the NFL's Seattle Seahawks.

Drafted in the 3rd round of the 1998 NFL Draft, Green was traded to the Packers in 2000. Despite his injury-shortened 2005 season, the club re-signed him to a one-year, $2 million contract.

After the 2006 season, he became a free agent and signed a four-year, $23 million deal with the Houston Texans.

He played for the UFL's Omaha Nighthawks in 2010.

Green will turn 34-years-old on February 16.
