His jersey was retired, less than one year after he retired.
Ex-Green Bay Packer Reggie White gives the thumbs-up to a sellout crowd as the Packers retired his number 92 during a halftime ceremony at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WI. White, who retired last season, is the fifth player to have his jersey retired by the team. Selected to the Pro Bowl a record 13 consecutive times from 1986-98, White was the NFL's defensive player of the year in 1987 and 1998, and is football's career sacks leader with 192 1/2 and Green Bay's career sacks leader with 68 1/2. The ordained minister joined the Packers in 1993 and helped lead the team to its Super Bowl win in January 1997.
He'll forever be remembered on the wall of fame at Lambeau.
