Former Packers Johnson, Whitehurst to meet with fans this weekend

Posted Dec 7, 2012

Willie Davis will also be in attendance at Sunday’s game in celebration of Pro Football Hall of Fame's 50th anniversary

Leading up to the Green Bay Packers game against the Detroit Lions on Sunday, Dec. 9, featured Packers alumni Ezra Johnson and David Whitehurst will be signing autographs and visiting with fans in the Packers Pro Shop on Saturday, Dec. 8, from 12:30 to 2 p.m.

The Tundra Tailgate Zone will also feature Whitehurst on gameday from 6 to 7 p.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, Johnson 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.’

Sunday’s game will celebrate the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s 50th anniversary. In celebration of the milestone, all players will wear a 50th anniversary patch on their uniforms and Packers alumnus/Pro Football Hall of Famer Willie Davis will be in attendance to represent all Packers players who are part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Willie will be introduced on the field during pre-game festivities.

Johnson, a first-round draft pick in the 1977 draft, played 11 seasons (1977-87) for the Green Bay Packers. Johnson was a premier pass-rusher from his defensive end position and earned Pro Bowl honors in 1978 after finishing second in the league with 20.5 sacks. He ranks fifth in team annals with 41.5 career sacks and was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 1997.

Whitehurst, the Packers’ eighth-round pick out of Furman in 1977, went on to play in 54 career games at quarterback. A dependable backup during most of his career, he started two seasons and led the 1978 team to a 8-7-1 record that fell just short of the playoffs. Whitehurst had a total of 28 passing and seven rushing touchdowns during his career.

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