Green Bay Packers alumni Tom Brown, Forrest Gregg and Jesse Whittenton will be in Green Bay this weekend taking part in various fan activities leading up to the Packers-Cowboys game.
Brown, a two-time Super Bowl champion, led the Packers defense for five seasons at cornerback. Playing in 70 games, Brown finished his career with 13 interceptions and six fumble recoveries. In 1968, he led the NFL with two non-offensive touchdowns – a fumble and punt return for a score.
Gregg, who was described by Vince Lombardi as "the finest player I ever coached," played in 187 consecutive games (1956, 58-70). Named All-Pro eight times and selected to nine Pro Bowl appearances, Gregg was voted to the NFL's 75th Anniversary Team in 1994. Gregg continued his career with the Packers as head coach from 1984 to 1987.
Whittenton was a playmaking cornerback for six seasons (1958-64) in Green Bay, tallying 20 interceptions in just 88 games and recorded a career-high six interceptions in 1960. A three-time All-NFL performer and two-time Pro Bowler, Whittenton was a member of two Green Bay championships (1961 and 62).
On Saturday, Nov. 6, both Brown and Whittenton will be visiting with fans and signing autographs in the Packers Pro Shop from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Gregg will be there from 2:30 to 4 p.m., signing his book, Winning In The Trenches. (Gregg will be signing only his book.)
On Sunday, Nov. 7, prior to the game from 5:30 to 6 p.m., Whittenton and Brown will be visiting with fans and signing autographs in the Tundra Tailgate Zone. More information on the Tundra Tailgate Zone can be found online at www.packers.com/gameday/tundra-tailgate-zone.html.
Also on Sunday, Gregg will be visiting with fans and signing autographs from 6 to 7 p.m. 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.'
All former Packers players will be introduced on Lambeau Field during pregame festivities.
