Greatest players in Green Bay Packers history: 36. Josh Sitton

Guard Josh Sitton might be on his third team in four years with the Miami Dolphins, but there is no doubt what he meant to the Packers’ offensive line for nearly a decade. Green Bay took Sitton in the fourth round of the 2008 NFL Draft out of Central Florida. In Green Bay, Sitton would make his first three of four Pro Bowls.

After being a rotational offensive lineman as a rookie in 2008, Sitton would emerge as a starter at right guard for Green Bay. Sitton would play a part in the Packers’ most recent Super Bowl championship in 2010 as a third-year player. By year five, Sitton would find himself a regular in the Pro Bowl.

2014 might be Sitton’s best year to date. He not only made his second trip to the Pro Bowl, but made the All-Pro first team. Green Bay would come up a game short of getting back to the Super Bowl that season, falling to the defending champion Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Championship. During his last year with the Packers, Sitton would make his third trip to the Pro Bowl playing right guard for Green Bay.

In 2016, Sitton would sign a three-year deal with the rival Chicago Bears after being cut in the preseason. Sitton made his fourth Pro Bowl in his first year with the Bears. He spent 2017 in Chicago before signing with Miami this past spring. At 32 years old, Sitton may still have a few years of high-level football left in the tank. Regardless, Sitton certainly made an impact in his eight years with the Packers.
