Packers Hall of Famer LeRoy Butler declares his "Welcome to the NFL" moment.
Even Hall of Fame players get their "Welcome to the NFL Moment."
Former Green Bay Packers linebacker LeRoy Butler, who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall
of Fame as a member of the 2022 class, explained his moment in an "Ask Me Anything"
session on NFL Reddit on Wednesday. As with many players of his generation,
Joe Montana and Jerry Rice helped open Butler's eyes as a rookie in Green Bay. "It was my rookie
year and we were playing against San Francisco. I was on third down and I was running the
tackle and I saw Joe Montana there. And then they said you have to cover Jerry Rice when he goes left," Butler explained.
