Jolly will be visiting with fans and signing autographs at surprise locations around Lambeau Field on gameday from 2 to 3 p.m. Worthy 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.
Johnny Jolly was selected by the Packers in the sixth round of the 2006 NFL Draft and played for the team from 2006-09 and in 2013. He recorded 135 tackles (89 solo) and five fumble recoveries. He also posted 18 passes defensed during his Green Bay career, including a career-high 11 in 2009, the most by a Packers defensive lineman since the team began recording the statistic in 1980 and the most by any defensive lineman in the league that year. He returned to the Packers in 2013 following a three-year hiatus from football and he appeared in 13 games, starting in eight.
Jerel Worthy was selected by the Packers in the 2012 NFL Draft and played for the team for two seasons, from 2012-13. He played extensively as a rookie, playing in 14 games and recording 35 tackles (19 solo), 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble. The defensive end's rookie season ended with an injury that also sidelined him for most of the 2013 season, and he was traded to New England. During the rest of his NFL career, he spent time with Kansas City, Detroit, Buffalo and Tampa Bay.
