Former Packers Davenport and Jackson to meet with fans this weekend

Posted Nov 19, 2013

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, Nov. 24, featured Packers alumni Najeh Davenport and Grady Jackson will be signing autographs and visiting with fans in the Packers Pro Shop on Saturday, Nov. 23, from 2:30 to 4 p.m.

The Tundra Tailgate Zone will also feature Davenport 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, Jackson 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.’

Davenport, a fourth-round pick in the 2002 draft out of Miami, played four seasons for the Green Bay Packers. The 250-pound powerful running back served as a productive complement to Ahman Green, and averaged more than 5 yards per carry in 2003 and 2004, the latter year’s total ranking fifth in the league among running backs. Davenport finished his career with 228 carries for 1,145 yards and eight touchdowns.

Jacksonjoined the Green Bay Packers on waivers from New Orleans midway through the 2003 season, when the mammoth defensive tackle started the remaining eight games of the campaign and helped solidify the Packers’ run defense. The impactful defender played three seasons for the Packers and racked up 133 tackles, four-and-a-half sacks, six passes defensed and two forced fumbles during his time in Green Bay.

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