The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame is set to get two new members in 2022.

As announced yesterday by the Green Bay Packers, WR Greg Jennings and LB Tim Harris are set to be inducted to the team’s Hall of Fame in September 2022.

After being drafted in the second round of the 2006 NFL Draft, Greg Jennings played for the team for seven years, while playing in the league for an overall sum of 10 years. In Jennings’ seven years with the team, he played in 96 games and started 86 of them.

Jennings was a crucial part in the development of Aaron Rodgers, having two of his best seasons during Rodgers’ first two seasons as a starter. Jennings by far led the team in yards, catches, and touchdowns during the 2010 Super Bowl season – recording 76 catches for 1,265 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Jennings would record a total of 425 catches, 6,537 yards and 53 touchdowns over his seven-year career with the team. After leaving the Packers in 2013, Jennings went on to have two underwhelming seasons with the Minnesota Vikings – only catching 127 passes for 1,546 yards and 10 touchdowns over two years. Jennings would play his last season in the NFL with the Miami Dolphins in 2015 – where he only started five games and recorded 19 catches for 208 yards.

Tim Harris, a fourth-round pick in the 1986 NFL Draft, only played for the Packers for five seasons. In those five seasons though, he made a very big impact on the team. Harris recorded an astonishing 55 sacks in five years – including the 1989 season where he recorded 19.5 sacks, which is still the Packers’ single-season franchise record.

After his stint with the Packers, Harris went on to play for the San Francisco 49ers for four out of five of the last years of his career. A small one-year run with the Philadelphia Eagles was sandwiched in between two stints with San Francisco. Harris would go on to win Super Bowl XXIV with the Niners, before retiring one season later.
