Packers legend John Brockington dead at 74

Apr 1, 2023

The Green Bay Packers announced that former fullback John Brockington died Friday at the age of 74.

Raised in Brooklyn, he was the ninth pick of the 1971 NFL Draft out of Ohio State.

Brockington was named the Offensive Rookie of the Year that season, as well as a first-team All-Pro, a feat he accomplished again two years later. He was named to the second team in 1972.

Brockington made the Pro Bowl in each of his first three seasons and was in Green Bay until 1977. He was released after the Packers' first game that year before being picked up by the Kansas City Chiefs.
