Big, talented Canadian offensive lineman are a valuable commodity in the CFL. Andrew Green was all of those things, and that is why Saskatchewan made him a second round draft pick in the 1994 CFL College draft. The Riders had to be patient, however, as Greene signed with the NFL and spent three years on practice rosters. Greene finally signed with the Riders in September, 1997, and played 5 games that year. Greene went back to the NFL with Seattle in 1998, and was released in February 1999. Greene returned to Saskatchewan and played just 4 games that year. Greene settled in with the Riders in 2000, winning both West and CFL All-Star honours as well as being named the Outstanding Offensive Lineman in the West.. Greene went on to win four more West All-Star selections (2001, 2003, 2004 and 2005) and three more CFL All-Stars (2003, 2004 and 2005). Greene also won the Outstanding Offensive Lineman Award in 2003. Greene left the Riders after the 2006 season and signed as a free agent with Winnipeg.
