 DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -As much as Trent Green enjoyed his six years with the Kansas City Chiefs, he doesn't have time for nostalgia.
So when he travels to Arrowhead Stadium for the Miami Dolphins' exhibition game against his former team Thursday night, Green's focus will be on the present rather than the past.
To Green, the game means an opportunity for the Miami offense to rebound after a dreadful showing in Saturday night's preseason opener against Jacksonville.
``We're just looking to make improvement on the first game and continue to make strides to get ready for the opener,'' Green said Tuesday. ``Obviously it adds a little more drama going back to K.C.''
Dolphins coach Cam Cameron said he planned to use the same rotation as in the exhibition opener. Green started against Jacksonville and played the entire first half before being followed by Cleo Lemon and rookie John Beck.
Green resisted dwelling on what kind of reception he might get from Chiefs fans.
``I really don't want to get too caught up in thinking what that's going to be,'' he said. ``I'm just going to let it happen, and we'll see. I had a great six years there and enjoyed it. My family enjoyed it. It was a great experience for us as a family, and I'm just happy to be down here.''
Green was traded by the Chiefs to the Dolphins in June for a conditional fifth-round pick that will become a fourth-round choice if Green takes 70 percent of the snaps on offense. The trade was consummated more than three months after Green refused to take a pay cut with the Chiefs and was given permission to talk to other teams.
Green, who started every game for the Chiefs in 2001-05 before missing eight games because of a concussion last season, said he harbored no hard feelings toward the Chiefs.
``No, I don't feel disrespected, having been in the league long enough and understanding how it works,'' Green said. ``They decided to go in a different direction. They wanted to get younger. Like I said at the time, I didn't agree with the decision, but I understood the decision. I just wanted an opportunity to go somewhere and play and felt that I still had some good years left playing, and I wanted that chance.''
In his debut in a Miami uniform, Green was under constant pressure and completed only six of 15 passes for 60 yards with one interception.
Most of the first-team offense also played the entire first half, managing only 64 yards and four first downs.
``We're hoping to make improvement from week to week and get ready for the opener,'' Green said. ``Understand that this is the preseason and we are growing. We are a group of new guys on offense and a lot of young guys, so it's going to be a growing process.''
