Davis To Serve As Green Bay's Honorary Captain


Hall of Fame defensive end Willie Davis will serve as the Packers' honorary captain for Sunday's NFC Championship Game between Green Bay and Chicago at Soldier Field.

Davis, who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1981, earned All-Pro honors five times and was a five-time Pro Bowl selection during his 10-year career (1960-69) with the Packers. He helped Green Bay win five NFL titles during the 1960s and holds the franchise record for career fumble recoveries (21). Acquired by the Packers in a 1960 trade after playing his first two seasons with Cleveland, Davis never missed a game in his 12-year NFL career.
