The Green Bay Packers has been home to some of the greatest football talents ever. From the world’s most iconic quarterbacks to deadly defensive stars, the Packers’ team roster has seen legendary players who have left a huge mark – not just on the team but on the NFL’s legacy.

But which players stand out from the rest? Well, whilst there will no doubt be numerous discussions on the topic – and there will probably be those who disagree… or feel our list is missing certain names, here we look at some of the best NFL players to ever wear the iconic green and gold of the Green Bay Packers.

Bart Starr

There will likely be no arguments with this one – as no discussion about the Green Bay Packers’ all-time greats could ever be complete without mentioning the iconic Bart Starr. The quarterback led Green Bay to no less than five NFL championships and won in the first two Super Bowls (I and II). Known for his perfect passing and his strong leadership, he was one of the main reasons that the Packers were so successful in the 1960s.

His number 15 jersey will forever be immortalised in Green Bay Packers history.

Brett Favre

Next on the list, we have Brett Favre, a name synonymous with toughness and durability – and is one of the most popular figures in Packers history. Favre’s 16-year career with the team as their starting quarterback was marked by his amazing streak of consecutive games played – and the Super Bowl victory of 1996.

Favre had a real gunslinger style and an ability to make plays even under immense pressure – which endeared him to fans and earned him a place among the Packers’ greats.

Aaron Rodgers

Following in the footsteps of icons Starr and Favre, Aaron Rodgers has also earned a reputation as one of the very best quarterbacks of his time. With a Super Bowl MVP award and numerous NFL MVP awards, he has demonstrated unparalleled skills, incredible accuracy, and an impressive football IQ.

His ability to make jaw-dropping throws and take the leading role at some of the most critical game moments has led to his legendary status in Green Bay history.

Reggie White

Reggie White, the ‘Minister of Defense’, made a huge impact on the Packers’ defence during his six seasons playing for Green Bay. His arrival in 1993 was a turning point for the team, helping to transform them into a defensive powerhouse. He played a major role in the team’s Super Bowl triumph – and he is still considered one of the greatest defensive players in NFL history.

Paul Hornung

Paul Hornung, the Golden Boy of the Packers, was a highly versatile player who could perform in numerous positions – contributing to the team as a running back, placekicker, and quarterback. His unrivalled versatility was evident to all when he won the NFL MVP award in 1961.

The fact that he could impact the game in all different roles made him a firm favourite with the fans – and he was a big part of the Packers’ success in the early 1960s.

Don Hutson

Last on our list, long before the modern passing era, Don Hutson was a force to be reckoned with in the NFL. He was widely considered to be the league’s first dominant receiver – setting numerous records and winning a number of NFL receiving titles during his career with the Packers from 1935 to 1945. His impact on the game, which has lasted for all these years, cements his status as a true Packers legend.

These are just some of the names worth mentioning. There are many more that have earned a place on the list – and some are out there, playing right now, legends in the making!
