Green Bay Blizzard Chief Operation Officer and part-owner Art Clarkson announced Sunday the Indoor Football League team was up for sale.

If it's up to Clarkson and Packers all-time leading rusher and part-owner Ahman Green, the operation will continue in Green Bay.

Both Clarkson and Green have told Local 5 they plan to stay on board as owners, and will try to recruit other investors to avoid folding the franchise before the IFL's September 1st deadline.

Green says it's important to give football players who haven't reached the NFL a chance to keep their careers alive, and the team also provides the community with the opportunity to watch football during the Packers offseason.

Green says he will reach out to past Packers teammates who still spend time in Titletown as potential co-owners including William Henderson, Bill Schroeder, Chris Jacke, Gilbert Brown, and Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila.
