Levens and Freeman get the nod

Two Packers from the great '90s teams are going to be the latest players enshrined in the Packers Hall of Fame. Running back Dorsey Levens and wide receiver Antonio Freeman will be officially inducted next July.

Both Levens and Freeman played huge roles in the Packers Super Bowl runs in 1996 and 1997. With 3,937 yards rushing from 1994-2001, Levens is the all-time fifth-best rusher in Packers history. He also had 271 receptions for 2,079 yards. Freeman is the Packers' all-time sixth-best receiver. He racked up 6,651 yards on 431 receptions from 1995-2001 and 2003. His 57 touchdowns rank him third most in team history for receivers.
