Green joins the Jets from the Green Bay Packers, where he was their leading rusher last season with 434 yards.

However, the 25-year-old fell behind rookie Eddie Lacy in the Packers' pecking order after only rushing for 71 yards on 21 carries during pre-season.

Solomon, meanwhile, joins from the Tennessee Titans having appeared in 13 games during his rookie season last year.

The 24-year-old, who can also play outside linebacker, was picked in the seventh round of the 2012 NFL draft, being selected 211th overall.
