Andy Nelesen said:Halfway through the Green Bay Packers game against the Cleveland Browns, the team will do something it has done only four times in 87 years: Retire a number.
Reggie Whiteâ€™s No. 92 will be added to the short list of numbers never to be worn again in Titletown. Whiteâ€™s number will become the fifth added to the ranks of the retired, which already includes Tony Canadeoâ€™s No. 3, Don Hutsonâ€™s No. 14, Bart Starrâ€™s No. 15 and Ray Nitschkeâ€™s No. 66.
Hereâ€™s a look at Reggie White â€¦ by the numbers.
0 â€” NFL teams with a better overall regular-season record since 1993, when White joined the Green & Gold.
2 â€” Teams that will retire Whiteâ€™s No. 92 this season. The Philadelphia Eagles will do so at halftime of their game against the Seattle Seahawks on Dec. 5.
3 â€” Minutes of video montage planned for Sundayâ€™s ceremony to honor White and his family.
3 â€” Sacks recorded by White during Packersâ€™ Super Bowl XXXI victory, a Super Bowl record.
4 â€” Packers players with retired numbers who are in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. White becomes eligible to be elected in February.
5 â€” Other players who have worn No. 92 for the Packers. They are: defensive tackle Rich Dimler, defensive ends Matt Koart and Ben Thomas, tackle Steve Collier and nose tackle John Jurkovic.
9 â€” Digits will hang on Lambeau Fieldâ€™s north facade after the team unveils Whiteâ€™s â€œ92.â€
