Ahman Green to be inducted into Packers’ Hall of Fame

Retired running back Ahman Green will be inducted into the Green Bay Packers' Hall of Fame on Saturday.

Green will be joined by offensive tackle Ken Ruettgers.

Green is the Packers' all-time leading rusher.

He played in the NFL for 12 seasons.

Between 2000 and 2004, Green led the NFL with 9,036 yards from scrimmage.

He was an all-around running back who rarely left the field.

"It's something that I expected all running backs to do, but we don't see it these days," Green told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "You kind of see a guy who's just a receiver, a fast back who gets the ball in the air and he's out in space. Or then you see a guy that just can't get tackled or a guy who just picks up the blitz. I think I was a jack-of-all-trades — and pretty good at all of them. ..

"I needed to be on my game physically so it was one less thing to worry about and one less thing for teammates to worry about. They'd know, Ahman was ready to play. They knew, 'I don't need to be worried about No. 30 because he was going to be ready mentally and physically to play.'"
