The Green Bay Packers are welcoming back featured alumni Al Harris and James Jones for the Packers-Seahawks Divisional playoff game on Sunday, Jan. 12.

Leading up to the game, the alumni will be signing autographs and visiting with fans at the Lambeau Field Atrium on Saturday, Jan. 9, from 11 a.m. to noon, and they will be greeting fans at the Packers Everywhere pep rally that evening at 6 p.m. at The Turn in Titletown.

Jones will be visiting with fans and signing autographs at surprise locations around Lambeau Field on gameday from 4:10 to 5:10 p.m. Harris 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.'

Selected in the sixth round of the 1997 NFL Draft out of Texas A&M-Kingsville, Al Harris came to Green Bay in 2003 following a trade, and he spent the next eight seasons with the Packers (2003-2010), racking up 14 interceptions and 108 passes defensed, and starting 83 straight regular-season games from 2003-08. He earned back-to-back Pro Bowl selections in 2007-08 after receiving alternate recognition the previous three years. In one of Harris' most memorable moments as a Packer, he returned an interception 52 years for a game-winning touchdown in overtime against Seattle in an NFC Wild Card contest on Jan. 4, 2004. The next season, he broke the franchise's single-season record for passes defensed with 28.

Selected in the third round of the 2007 NFL Draft out of San Jose State by the Green Bay Packers, James Jones spent eight seasons (2007-13, 2015) in Green Bay and ranks No. 9 in franchise history with 45 receiving touchdowns and No. 10 with 360 receptions. His four seasons with 50-plus receptions are tied for the sixth most in Packers history, and his 5,195 receiving yards rank 12th. Jones played in 120 games with 62 starts for the Packers during the regular season, appearing in all 16 games six times. In 2012, he set a career high with a league-leading 14 receiving touchdowns, which tied for the fourth most in a single season in franchise history.
