Written by Chris Powers

It seems as if 2021 was the worst year for former professional athletes, someone would think that 2022 would hopefully be better. 2021 had a record amount of athlete deaths past and present in the sports world. Whether it’s the NBA, NFL, NHL or MLB, 2021 absolutely caused havoc and on retired professional athletes.

Unfortunately, father time struck again, but this time with a former player of the Green Bay Packers. Sadly, on Christmas Eve, it was announced that former Green Bay Packer Hall of Famer Fred Cone had passed away. At the time of his passing, he was the oldest living Green Bat Packer. He was a fullback and a place kicker and was inducted into Green Bay’s Hall of Fame in 1974. Cone also played college football at Clemson University.

In other Green Bay Packers news, during an interview on SIRIUS XM radio, former Green Bay Packers long time quarterback Brett Favre commented that Aaron Rodgers was the best playmaker currently in the NFL.

“I just think that his football IQ is as good as anybody’s that ever played the game,” Favre said of Rodgers.”
