In addition to former Packers quarterback Bart Starr, three more players with ties to Green Bay will be the flag bearer for their respective franchises to form a tunnel for players to run through onto the field when the Packers host the Saints for the NFL Kickoff game on Thursday.
Linebacker Ted Hendricks, a Pro Football Hall of Famer who played for the Packers in 1974, will represent the Oakland Raiders.
Defensive lineman Don Davey, who was a third-round draft choice of the Packers and played for them from 1991 through 1994, will hold the flag for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Finally, wide receiver Al Toon––a current member of the Packers board of directors––will bear the flag for the New York Jets.
