Green Bay Packers retired numbers
HB, 1941-44, 1946-52
Founder, coach and player Curly Lambeau is the only Packer credited with wearing the number 1. Lambeau's #1 has yet to be retired. When Brett Favre retired from the Packers, the organization planned to retire the #4 in his honor. When he returned to football, this was put off indefinitely. Paul Hornung's #5 was unofficially retired at the Packers' annual press party on July 10, 1967, although there has not been a ceremony to put his number on the wall of retired numbers at Lambeau Field. In the 2013 training camp pre-season games, jersey #1 has been worn by rookie WR Alex Gillett, and #5 by rookie and WR Omarius Hines. QB Don Majkowski wore No. 5 his rookie season (1987) before switching to No. 7.
