Green Bay Packers: Top 10 players of the 2000s
By Josh McPeak
8. Ahman Green
The Green Bay Packers’ All-Time leading rusher cracks the list at number 8.
Ahman Green is also a member of the Packers Hall of Fame.
During his stint with the Packers he built a resume that included accolades of 4 Pro Bowls, NFC Offensive Player of the Year in 2003, FedEx Ground Player of the Year award in 2003 as well as the NFC rushing leader in 2003.
Fred Vinson and a fifth round pick is an absolute steal for the likes of Ahman Green. That is exactly what the Packers traded to the Seattle Seahawks for Green.
During his first four seasons with the Packers, Green gained more yards from scrimmage and more rush yards than any player in the NFL.
His 1,883 rush yards in 2003 is the Packers single season mark.
Bo Jackson and Ahman Green are the only two players with multiple 90-plus-yard touchdown runs.
“Batman” was a free agent following the 2006 season, which saw him sign with the Texans. Green would return to the injury-riddled Packers in 2009 for 8 games.
