Nealon Greene was one of the top running quarterbacks in the CFL. Greene originally signed with Toronto and spent 1998 as a backup with the Argos. He was traded in June, 1999 along with Marcello Simmons for QB Jimmy Kemp and Inoke Breckterfield. Greene spent three years in Edmonton (1999-2001) highlighted by 878 yards rushing in 1999 and 765 yards in 2000. After the 2001 season, Greene was traded to Saskatchewan along with RB Simon Bafoe and a second round draft pick for RB Darren Davis, OL Dan Comisky and P Mike O'Brian. Greene bcame the starting Rider QB in 2002 and 2003 leading a run orientated, ball control offense. In 2004, Greene suffered a season ending injury in the first game of the season, opening the door for Henry Burris to retake the number one spot. When Burris went to Calgary in 2005 as a free-agent, Greene resumed his starting role. A bad game in the Western Semi-Finals against Edmonton seemed to mark the end of Greene's run in Saskatchewan as Saskatchewan drafted QB Kerry Joseph from the Ottawa dispersal draft and then traded Nealton Greene to Montreal for CB Almondo Curry. Greene played one year in Montreal in 2006, but saw limited action behind Anthony Calvillo. He was released after the 2006 season.
Greene had one two point convert attempt in 1999.
