Green Bay Packers alumni Zeke Bratkowski and Mike Butler will be in Green Bay this week taking part in various fan activities leading up to the Packers-Colts game.
Bratkowski, a former backup quarterback during the Packers’ first two Super Bowl victories, played the final seven years of his career in the Green and Gold. He threw for 3,147 yards, 21 touchdowns and also was a part of the Packers’ 1965 NFL Championship team. Following his days as a player, he served two stints as a Packers’ offensive assistant coach. He currently is training and preparing future NFL quarterbacks for the draft.
Butler, an exceptional pass rusher for the Packers, played in 95 games, with 87 starts, during his seven seasons in Green Bay. His best all-around season was in 1978 when he amassed 78 solo tackles, registered 11½ sacks and intercepted five passes. He currently is the assistant director for asset management for the Tampa Housing Authority.
