Packers fans are mourning the death of fullback John Brockington. Drafted in 1971 in the first round after a stellar career at Ohio State, Brockington was named NFL Rookie of the Year, and became the first NFL player to rush for more than a thousand yards in his first three seasons. His production faded after that, and he was released midway through the 1977 season. He was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 1984. John Brockington was 74 years old.
