YES

Although the card has expired your immigration status remains unchanged and it's a simple matter to complete the USCIS I-90 form (and pay the fee) to renew it. I-9 verfication requires an Alien number. Here's some more info:

If your green card has expired and you are not married then you will have to apply for another one. You will have to go to the DMV and start the paper work.

Under U.S. Immigration Law, Lawful Permanent Residents must carry their Green Card at all times. Lawful Permanent Residents who cannot produce their Green Card as evidence of status may have difficulty establishing authorization to work, travel or apply for financial services or government benefits. Therefore, if your Green Card is lost or stolen, or expired it is important to replace it right away using Form I-90.

If it is expired then that card is no longer valid - You can not add years to make it work.

Having a Green card entitles a person the status of a permanent resident. This means that the green card holder can live and work in the US permanently. The permanent residency status is for the entire lifetime of that person. So this means that you can stay in the US foe your entire lifetime provided that you renew your green card periodically (once in 10 yrs)
