Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre on Tuesday joined the long list of personalities lending support to the Pro Football Hall of Fame bid of offensive lineman Jerry Kramer.
Publishing his support on the social media site Sqor, Favre writes:
We all know what a great honor it would be, being remembered for your career in the NFL by getting inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH. There, the walls are adorned with the busts of some of the greatest athletes to ever take the field. However, in my opinion there’s one man whose presence there has been overdue for some time now; I’m talking about Jerry Kramer. His worthiness of a spot in this ring of honor speaks volumes; besides class and integrity his resume is very impressive. In his career with the Green Bay Packers, under the legendary Coach Vince Lombardi, as a right guard from 1958-1968, he played a pivotal role in the Packers 5 NFL Championships in only 7 years. In addition to that he was also named to the Pro Bowl 3 times, is a member of the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, a five-time First Team All-Pro selection, and a two-time Super Bowl Champion! Please help me make a stand, and show your support for NFL and Green Bay Packers great, Jerry Kramer! Thank you, Brett
The same message was published on the homepage of Favre's personal website, OfficialBrettFavre.com.
Perhaps this can be viewed as one small step for Favre getting back into the good graces of the Green Bay fanbase after leaving on less than concilatory terms in 2008.
Kramer recently joined Cheesehead TV for the 400th episode of Railbird Central in late June. On the show, Kramer likewise supported Favre's candidacy into the team's Hall of Fame.
