GREEN BAY -

Former Green Bay Packers players Ahman Green and Ken Ruettgers will be inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame next summer.

Green, a running back obtained in a trade with Seattle in 2000, played eight seasons with the Packers and finished as the club's all-time rushing leader with 8,322 yards.

He also holds franchise records for most yards from scrimmage (11,048), 1,000-yard seasons (six), 100-yard games (33) and rushing attempts (1,851).

Ruettgers played 12 years for the Packers (1985-96) and was a fixture at left tackle for more than a decade. A first-round draft pick in 1985, he appeared in 156 career games, with 140 starts.

The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. announced the selections Tuesday. The 44th Hall of Fame induction banquet will be held July 19.
