Acquired by Green Bay as a free agent in 1993 from the Dolphins, Galbreath was a durable and dependable right guard for three seasons with the Packers. He started every game from 1993 through 1995, extending his NFL regular-season consecutive-game starting streak to 100. Including seven postseason contests, Galbreath started 55 consecutive games in Green Bay, where he wore No. 76.
In his final season with the Packers in 1995, Galbreath helped running back Edgar Bennett, now the team’s running backs coach, compile 1,067 yards rushing, the first 1,000-yard season by a Green Bay back in 17 years.
Galbreath came to the Packers from the Miami Dolphins, who drafted him in the eighth round (212th overall) in 1988 out of the University of Tennessee, where he was a three-year starter and a first-team All-America selection by The Sporting News as a senior. Galbreath was named to Tennessee’s 100-Year All-Time Team in 1991.
During five seasons with the Dolphins, Galbreath missed just two contests and started 75 of 78 games played (79 of 82 including playoffs). Miami did not allow a sack during Galbreath’s first 19 starts as a professional, establishing an NFL record, and Galbreath helped the Dolphins’ offense hold opponents to NFL lows in sacks in both 1989 (10 sacks) and 1990 (16).
Galbreath finished his NFL career in 1996 with the New York Jets. Overall, he played in 141 regular-season games with 131 starts. Including playoffs, he appeared in 152 games and started 142.
After his retirement, Galbreath was an assistant coach at several schools in the college ranks, including at his alma mater, Tennessee.
