The Green Bay Packers are welcoming back featured alumni Josh Bidwell and Vonnie Holliday for the Packers-Falcons game on Monday, Dec. 8. Leading up to the game, the alumni will be signing autographs and visiting with fans in the Packers Pro Shop on Sunday, Dec. 7, from 2:30 to 4 p.m.
The Tundra Tailgate Zone will also feature Bidwell on gameday from 6 to 7 p.m., where he will be visiting with fans and signing autographs. More information on the Tundra Tailgate Zone can be found online at www.packers.com/gameday/tundra-tailgate-zone.html.
Also on Monday, Holliday will be visiting with fans and signing autographs during that same time in the Legends Club on the Associated Bank Club Level, an area accessible to game attendees with suite or club seat tickets, as a guest of the ‘Alumni Meet and Greet.’
Drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the fourth round of the 1999 draft, Josh Bidwell spent four seasons with the team and holds the record for most consecutive punts without a block, with 308. A very effective punter in helping out his coverage teams, his 35.5-yard career net average ranks third in team annals. Equally dangerous as a placement punter, his 85 career punts inside the 20 rank third in Packers history.
Vonnie Holliday began his five-year Packers career as a first-round draft pick in 1998. A defensive end, he recorded eight sacks in that debut season, the second-most for a rookie in team history. He authored a monster game against Buffalo in 2002, recording five sacks and three forced fumbles, both single-game Packers records. During his five-year Packers tenure, he recorded an impressive 32 career sacks.
Both former Packers players will be introduced on Lambeau Field during pregame festivities.
