Also, two alumni, Lynn Dickey and Jan Stenerud, are scheduled to make appearances throughout the weekend at various locations, per home game custom.
Dickey came to the Packers from the Oilers in a 1976 trade. As the starting quarterback, Dickey led the Packers to the playoffs in 1982 where they defeated the St. Louis Cardinals in the first round when Dickey went 17-of-23 for 260 yards and four touchdowns in a 41-16 triumph. Dickey had a career year in 1983 when he powered the Packers’ offense to a then-team record 429 points. He threw for 4,458 yards and an NFL-best 32 touchdowns, and was named second-team All-NFC.
Stenerud came to the Packers as a free agent in 1980 after 13 seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs. In three seasons with the Packers, he played in 45 games and scored 292 points on 59 field goals and 115 extra points. Overall with 1,699 career NFL points, he ranked behind only George Blanda in all-time scoring at the time of his retirement. His 373 career field goals and seven seasons of scoring 100 or more points were also NFL records.
On Saturday, Sept. 8, both Dickey and Stenerud will be visiting with fans and signing autographs in the Packers Pro Shop from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Also on gameday, from 1:45 to 2:45 p.m., Dickey will be visiting with fans and signing autographs in the Tundra Tailgate Zone.

During that same time, Stenerud will be 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.’
The members of the 1982 team will take the field and serve in Sunday’s Ambassador Line during pregame festivities, and then be introduced from the field during halftime. Other Packers alumni will be in town as well, and be on the sidelines during the game.
