A third-round draft pick for the Packers in 1992, Robert Brooks authored a distinguished 7-year career with the Packers, from 1992 to 1998. He holds the team record for receiving yards in a single season, with 1,497 in 1995. He also led the Packers with 102 receptions and 13 touchdowns in 1995, totaling 306 catches for 4,225 yards and 32 touchdowns over his career. He also helped to popularize the Lambeau Leap, the beloved Lambeau Field tradition that remains a fan favorite today. He was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 2007.
Drafted in the second round by the Green Bay Packers in 1996, Derrick Mayes was a valued contributor at wide receiver for the Packers’ powerful offenses during the 1996-98 seasons. Playing in 33 games, the sure-handed Mayes helped the team to three playoff appearances, including Super Bowls XXXI and XXXII. In his three years with the team, he had a total of 54 receptions, 730 receiving yards and five receiving touchdowns, three of which were recorded during one game against the Carolina Panthers in 1998.
Both former Packers players will be introduced on Lambeau Field during pregame festivities.
