Before joining the Devils, Greene attended and played hockey for Miami University. He was signed out of Miami University, and was assigned to the Devil's AHL affiliate, the Lowell Devils, after training camp. He succeeded at the AHL level, making the PlanetUSA all-star team.
During his rookie professional season in 2006–07, he was called up for a short stint to replace the injured Johnny Oduya. Though Greene played well and showed considerable promise,[according to whom?] he was reassigned to Lowell upon Oduya's return. Later in the season, he was again recalled when Colin White was injured. When the 2007 Stanley Cup playoffs began, the NHL salary cap no longer applied, allowing the Devils to add Greene to their permanent roster. With the return of injured defenseman Richard Matvichuk, it appeared as though Greene would sit. However, an injury to Colin White allowed Greene to remain on the roster. During this period, Greene played so well that, upon White's return, Oduya was scratched instead of Greene.
On July 1, 2011, Greene was signed to a four-year, $14 million contract extension with the Devils.
On July 30, 2014, Greene was signed to a new five-year, $25 million contract extension with the Devils.
The following season, Greene injured his hand in a game against the Carolina Hurricanes, resulting in him losing his streak of 350 consecutive NHL games played. Greene's streak was the third longest in Devils history, behind Travis Zajac and Ken Daneyko. At the conclusion of the season, Greene was the Devils nominee for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy, awarded to the player who best shows perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to hockey.
