Former Packers Adderley, Robinson and Taylor to meet with fans this weekend

Posted Nov 30, 2012

Former players at Packers Pro Shop Saturday, Tundra Tailgate Zone and Legends Club Sunday

Leading up to the Green Bay Packers game against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Dec. 2, featured Packers alumni Herb Adderley, Dave Robinson and Aaron Taylor will be signing autographs and visiting with fans in the Packers Pro Shop on Saturday, Dec. 1, from 12:30 to 2 p.m.  Also in the Pro Shop on Saturday, Adderley and Robinson will sign copies of their new book Lombardi’s Left Side from 2:30 to 4 p.m.

The Tundra Tailgate Zone will also feature Taylor on gameday from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., where he will be visiting with fans and signing autographs. More information on the Tundra Tailgate Zone can be found online at www.packers.com/gameday/tundra-tailgate-zone.html.

Also on Sunday, Adderley and Robinson will be visiting with fans and signing autographs during that same time in the Legends Club on the Associated Bank Club Level, an area accessible to game attendees with suite or club seat tickets, as a guest of the ‘Alumni Meet and Greet.’

Adderley was the Packers’ No. 1 draft choice in 1961 after a noteworthy career at Michigan State. Considered one of the all-time greats at cornerback, the five-time All-Pro played in five Pro Bowls and the first two Super Bowls with Green Bay. Adderly racked up 39 interceptions with the Packers, seven of which he ran back for touchdowns. His three defensive touchdowns in 1965 remain tied for a Packers record.

Robinson, the Packers’ No. 1 draft choice in 1963 was as an All-American linebacker out of Penn State. In 10 seasons with the Packers, he earned multiple All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors and helped the Packers win three NFL championships, including the first two Super Bowls. One of the best linebackers of his era, he was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 1982 and this year is a senior candidate for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Taylor, a first-round draft pick in 1994 out of Notre Dame, played a total of 53 overall games for the Green Bay Packers from 1995 to 1997. The offensive guard was a key member of an offensive line that helped pave the way to three straight conference championship games, two Super Bowls and a win in Super Bowl XXXI. Overall, Taylor helped the Packers to 41 wins during his career.

All three former Packers players will be introduced on Lambeau Field during pregame festivities.
