Brett Goode (GEWD), 6-foot-1, 255 pounds, is entering his 10th season in the NFL. He was originally signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent from the University of Arkansas in 2007. Goode spent part of two offseasons with Jacksonville before signing with the Packers on Sept. 1, 2008. He served as Green Bay’s primary long snapper from 2008-16, playing in 142 regular-season games and 14 playoff contests. Goode handled snapping duties in all 16 games as well as all three postseason contests last season. He will wear No. 61 for the Packers.
- Reliable long snapper was a last-minute injury replacement for LS J.J. Jansen following the 2008 preseason and has performed the job almost flawlessly for the past seven seasons.
- One of only two Packers (K Mason Crosby) to appear in all 112 regular-season games from 2008-14.
- Has appeared in all 112 regular-season games and 11 playoff contests since joining the club, having recorded 12 coverage tackles and a fumble recovery in his seven seasons, including a career-best five tackles in 2010.
- Has snapped for all six of the longest field goals in franchise history (all by Crosby).
- In 2014, he snapped for the longest field goal at Lambeau Field (Crosby, 55 yards on Sept. 14 vs. N.Y. Jets) and for P Tim Masthay as he set the franchise record (since 1976) for the most career punts inside the 20-yard line (108), surpassing Craig Hentrich (104) for the team mark.
- Helped Crosby connect on 33 of 37 field goals in 2013, an 89.2 percentage that ranks No. 2 in franchise history behind only Jan Stenerud’s 91.7 percentage (22-24) in 1981.
- Also contributed to Masthay setting a single-season franchise record (since 1976) for net punting average (38.95) in 2013.
- Played a key role in Masthay tying a team mark for the most punts inside the 20 with 30 on the season in 2012.
- Helped key an all-around improvement for the special teams in 2011, one that saw the units climb to No. 13 overall in the annual Dallas Morning News rankings, the team’s highest finish since 2007.
- Played a critical role in Masthay posting a team-record 45.6-yard gross punting average in 2011.
- Also centered a placement operation in ’11 that saw Crosby produce a career season, one that resulted in Crosby being named a first alternate for the Pro Bowl.
- Crosby ranked No. 4 in the NFL with 140 points and his 85.7 field-goal percentage was a career high at the time. Goode also snapped for each of Crosby’s franchise-record 23 consecutive field goals, a mark that broke Chris Jacke’s previous record of 17 set in 1993.
- Originally signed by Green Bay as a free agent on Sept. 1, 2008, three days after Jansen suffered a season-ending knee injury in the preseason finale vs. Tennessee.
- Earned his first NFL roster spot with Green Bay after two failed attempts with Jacksonville, having originally signed as a non-drafted rookie free agent with the Jaguars in May 2007 and again on March 5, 2008, twice attending the team’s offseason program, before being released.
- Signed a contract extension with the Packers on Oct. 13, 2012.
