Collins and Clifton Join Packers Hall of Fame
Before Brett Favre goes into the Pro Football Hall of Fame the Packers add a few Lambeau legends to theirs. Nick Collins and Chad Clifton were inducted into the Hall of Fame after a combined 19 seasons in Green Bay.
Collins emerged as one of the best safeties in the NFL being named to the All-Pro team from 2008-2010. He picked the biggest stage for his biggest play. Collins ran back an interception for a touchdown against the Steelers in Super Bowl XLV. A neck injury in 2011 forced him into an early retirement.
Clifton was a mainstay at left tackle protecting both Favre and Aaron Rodgers' blindside for 12 years. He is a two time Pro Bowler starting in 160 of the 165 games he played in.
Former broadcaster Russ Winnie was also inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame.
