Green, Ruettgers enter Packers Hall of Fame

Ahman Green is franchise's all-time leading rusher

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WKBT) - The Packers Hall of Fame grew by two names Saturday night.

In a special ceremony at Lambeau Field, former running back Ahman Green and offensive lineman Ken Ruettgers were honored.

Green is the Packers' all-time leading rusher.

"At the end of the day, it's the motivation from my family, our friends, the coaches, and the people that supported us and coming here as a Packer in 2000, getting traded here in April, I found out right away it's going to be a lot easier to play along with my family and friends with Packers fans," Green said.

Ruettgers played his entire career in Green Bay, mostly at left tackle in the late '80's and early '90's.

"[People] say, you played with Brett Favre, didn't you? And I say no, he played with me," Ruettgers joked.
