Green said that he's excited to have fellow tight end Hunter Henry (knee) back in the fold for 2019, Hayley Elwood of the Chargers' official site reports.

After missing the vast majority of the 2018 season while recovering from a torn ACL, Henry has re-established himself as the No. 1 tight end this offseason, pushing Green back to a No. 2 role. However, Green is a nice blocking complement to the receiving-oriented Henry, so there should be plenty of playing time for both in 2019. With Antonio Gates no longer in the fold -- and only likely to be brought back if the aforementioned tight ends succumbed to an injury -- the only remote competition Green legitimately has for backup snaps will come from another blocking specialist in Sean Culkin.
