GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila and Chris Jacke are the headliners of the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame 2013 class.
Gbaja-Biamila played all nine of his NFL seasons with the Packers, accumulating a franchise-record 74.5 sacks along the way. After playing only seven games as a rookie, the team's 2000 fifth-round pick then began a streak of having at least 10 sacks for four consecutive seasons. Often known simply as KGB, the defensive end played 132 career games with Green Bay before being released by the team in 2008. He was a Pro Bowl selection in 2003.
Jacke, the Packers' kicker for eight seasons from 1989-96, was drafted by the team in the sixth round. More than 15 years since playing his last game in Green Bay, he is still third on the Packers' all-time scoring list with 820 points, behind only Ryan Longwell and Don Hutson. Jacke has the most 50-plus yard field goal makes (17) in franchise history and also holds the team record for most field goals in a game (five), which he did twice. Jacke was a Pro Bowl selection in 1993 and won a Super Bowl ring with the Packers in his final season with Green Bay.
Joining Gbaja-Biamila and Jacke is contributor Emil Fischer, who joined the board of directors in 1926 and held several roles with the Packers for more than three decades.
Gbaja-Biamila, Jacke and Fischer will join the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame with an induction ceremony on Saturday, July 20, 2013, in the Lambeau Field Atrium. Tickets can be purchased for 135 each.
