  • Sat., Apr. 26, 2014 8:00AM - 6:00PM CDT Packers Pro Shop Tent Sale

    The sale is taking place earlier than in previous years, due to the construction at Lambeau Field and the work that the Pro Shop team must complete in preparation for the new store, which will open this summer. Visitors to Lambeau Field should enter the Atrium through the Oneida Nation Gate. Parking is available in the lot on Lambeau Field’s east side near the Oneida Nation Gate, which can be accessed off Oneida Street and Lombardi Avenue.

    The sale will feature the traditional mix of Pro Shop items greatly reduced in price and other special purchases.

    The team’s football operations staff also has provided Packers team apparel no longer in use, including a large assortment of t-shirts, shorts, jackets, jerseys and pants. Some items are practice-worn gear not normally available in the Pro Shop.

    The tent sale began in 1994 in the parking lot outside the former Pro Shop on the north end of Lambeau Field and grew into a popular event. Now in its 11th year in the Atrium, the tent sale also was held in the west side stadium concourse in previous years.

Quarterback AARON RODGERS of the Green Bay Packers, cornerback CHARLES TILLMAN of the Chicago Bears and kicker LAWRENCE TYNES of the New York Giants are the NFC Offensive, Defensive and Special Teams Players of the Month for October, the NFL announced Thursday.

OFFENSE: QB AARON RODGERS, GREEN BAY PACKERS

  • Rodgers completed 96 of 141 passes (68.1 percent) for 1,101 yards with 14 touchdowns and one interception for a 121.5 passer rating during the month as the Packers went 3-1.

  • For the month, Rodgers led the NFL in touchdown passes and was second in passer rating. He ranked second in the NFC in passing yards and completion percentage.

  • He threw multiple touchdown passes in all four October games, including six in Week 6 when he was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week.

  • Through the first eight games of the season, Rodgers has 21 touchdown passes. He is the first player in NFL history to pass for at least 20 touchdowns through his team’s first eight games in consecutive seasons.

  • In his eighth season from California, this is Rodgers’ sixth career Player of the Month Award.

  • Rodgers’ six Player of the Month Awards are tied for the most since the award was created in 1986. He is tied with TOM BRADY (Offense), BRETT FAVRE (Offense), BARRY SANDERS (Offense), BRUCE SMITH (Defense) and STEVE YOUNG (Offense).

DEFENSE: CB CHARLES TILLMAN, CHICAGO BEARS

  • Tillman had two interception-return TDs, two forced fumbles, five passes defensed and 23 tackles in October.

  • During the month, the Bears posted a 4-0 record and led the NFL with five INT-TDs.

  • The Bears are the first team in NFL history with six INT-TDs in the first seven games of a season.

  • In his 10th year from Louisiana-Lafayette, this is Tillman’s first career Player of the Month Award.

  • This is the second consecutive month a Bear has been named Defensive Player of the Month (TIM JENNINGS, September). Tillman and Jennings are the only cornerbacks in team history to be honored with a monthly award.

SPECIAL TEAMS: K LAWRENCE TYNES, NEW YORK GIANTS

  • Tynes led the NFL during the month with 13 field goals and 51 points as the Giants went 4-0.
