Luke, a fourth-round pick in 1975 from Ohio State, played six seasons for the Packers, starting five years (1976-80) at safety. He posted 10 career interceptions, returning one for a touchdown. His best season came in 1978, when he registered 133 unassisted tackles, the third-best single-season performance in Packers history.
Buchanon became a starter as a 1972 rookie and was called the best cornerback to enter the NFL in a generation. He posted 21 career interceptions for the Green and Gold and in 1978, his nine interceptions tied for second most in Packers history for a single season. Four of those picks came in one game against the San Diego Chargers, tying an NFL record. Buchanon was an All-Pro choice in 1978 and was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 1993.
Both former Packers players will be introduced on Lambeau Field during pregame festivities.
