On May 4, 2018, the Green Bay Packers signed Greene to a three-year, $1.71 million contract that includes a signing bonus of $3,500.[5][6]

Throughout training camp, Greene competed against Jermaine Whitehead to be the primary backup free safety behind starter Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.[7] Head coach Mike McCarthy named Greene the third free safety on the Packers’ depth chart to begin the regular season, behind Clinton-Dix and Whitehead.[8]

Greene was inactive as a healthy scratch for the first two regular season games. On September 23, 2018, he made his professional regular season debut in a Week 3 loss to the Washington Redskins. On October 30, 2018, the Packers traded Clinton-Dix to the Redskins.[9] As a result, Greene became the primary backup free safety behind Whitehead. The Packers placed Greene on injured reserve on December 8, 2018 with an ankle injury.[10]

On September 16, 2019, Greene was placed on injured reserve with an ankle injury.[11] He was designated for return from injured reserve on January 2, 2020, and began practicing with the team again.[12] He was activated on January 18, 2020 prior to the NFC Championship game.[13]
