Former kicker Ryan Longwell, the all-time leading scorer in franchise history, has informed the club of his decision to retire with the Packers. The announcement was made Monday by Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations.

Longwell scored 1,054 points during his nine-year career (1997-2005) in Green Bay, connecting on 226 field goals and 376 extra points. He set a team record by leading the club in scoring in nine consecutive seasons (1997-2005), besting the previous mark of seven by Don Hutson (1939-45). Longwell’s 964 points from 1997-2004 were the most in the NFL over that span.

Longwell also holds franchise records for field goals (226), field-goal percentage (81.6, 226/277), seasons leading the team in field goals (nine), extra points (376), 100-point seasons (eight) and consecutive games scoring (144).

Longwell, who attended the University of California, entered the NFL in 1997 as a non-drafted free agent with San Francisco. He was waived by the 49ers on July 9 that year and was claimed off waivers the next day by Green Bay. Longwell played the final six seasons of his career (2006-11) with the Minnesota Vikings and ranks No. 13 on the NFL’s all-time scoring list with 1,687 career points.
