One of the Packers all-time best running backs signed his rookie contract – John Brockington.
Packers fans – no, football fans – will remember this guy. He carried the ball north-south, his knees and powerful legs pounding the earth and any defensive player attempting to tackle him.
One of the best draft choices by former Packers head coach Dan Devine, Brockington brought a renewed running game to Green Bay and would go on to several years of success.
This day in Packers history is brought to you by the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame.
