LB Dave Robinson elected to Pro Football Hall of Fame

Posted Feb 2, 2013


LB Dave Robinson, who played 10 seasons (1963-72) for the Green Bay Packers and was a member of teams that won three NFL championships and two Super Bowls, was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a senior candidate. The announcement was made today by the Hall of Fame’s selection committee in New Orleans.

“On behalf of the Green Bay Packers, I want to congratulate Dave on his well-deserved election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “He was such a vital part of those great defenses in the 1960s that helped the team win NFL championships and Super Bowl titles under Vince Lombardi. Dave’s contributions to the Packers have not been limited to the field, as he has also been a great ambassador for the organization over the years. We are thrilled that he received this honor.”

Robinson was drafted by the Packers in the first round of the 1963 NFL Draft (No. 14 overall) out of Penn State University. He was selected to the Pro Bowl three times (1966-67, 1969) and twice earned first-team All-Pro honors from The Associated Press (1967, 1969) during his time in Green Bay. Robinson started on teams that won three consecutive NFL championships (1965-67) and two straight Super Bowls (I and II). He was named to the NFL’s All-Decade Team of the 1960s.

Robinson played in 127 regular-season games during his 10 seasons in Green Bay and registered 21 interceptions, which is tied for No. 3 in franchise history among linebackers behind only John Anderson and Ray Nitschke (25 each). His 12 interceptions from 1965-67 were the most in the league among linebackers. In eight of Robinson’s 10 seasons with the Packers, the team ranked in the top five in the league in scoring defense (1963-69, 1972). Robinson finished his career in Washington, where he played two seasons (1973-74) for the Redskins.

Robinson is the 22nd member of the Packers to be elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
