Patriot type player through and through even in his post Patriot career (contrast that with certain others). I thought his words deserved their own post. Green-Ellis said Wednesday in a conference call from Cincinnati: â€œHow you approach your business and how you go about being a professional at whatever youâ€™re doing, not just a professional football player but just a professional in life, doing things the right way. The Patriot way has helped me tremendously throughout my career, not only throughout my career but coming into the league as a young man and also growing into a full-fledged adult now and having a family of my own. Itâ€™s things like that that I think the Patriot way helped me tremendously.
