The Green Bay Packers are welcoming back featured alumni William Henderson and Bryce Paup for the Packers-Vikings game on Saturday, Dec. 24. Leading up to the game, the alumni will be signing autographs and visiting with fans in the Lambeau Field Atrium on Friday, Dec. 23, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The Tundra Tailgate Zone will also feature Henderson on gameday from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., where he will be visiting with fans and signing autographs. More information on the Tundra Tailgate Zone can be found online at www.packers.com/gameday/tundra-tailgate-zone.html.
Also on Sunday, Paup will be visiting with fans and signing autographs during that same time 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.’
William Henderson, a third-round selection from North Carolina, spent 12 seasons in Green Bay (1995-2006) and appeared in 188 games with 112 starts. His 188 career games in a Packers uniform were more than all but four players in team history (Brett Favre, Donald Driver, Bart Starr and Ray Nitschke). A bruising blocker, Henderson helped pave the way for seven 1,000-yard rushers. A member of the Packers’ Super Bowl XXXI and XXXII teams, he earned All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors in 2004, and was enshrined in the Packers Hall of Fame in 2011.
Bryce Paup was selected by the Packers in the sixth round of the 1990 NFL Draft from Northern Iowa and spent five seasons in Green Bay, appearing in 64 games. A talented linebacker, Paup’s 32.5 sacks in a Packers uniform ranks eighth for most career sacks in club history. He also authored several multiple-sack outings, with a career-high four-and-a-half sacks against Tampa Bay in 1991, and three sacks against Kansas City in 1993.
