GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers have announced they will induct two former players and a former team president into their Hall of Fame.

The team will add kicker Chris Jacke and defensive end Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila and former team president Emil Fischer during a ceremony in July.

Jacke made 77.2 percent of his field goal attempts in Green Bay.  He earned first-team all-pro in 1993 and made a number of game-winning kicks during his career.

They included the 1989 game-winner versus Tampa Bay on the road, and a 1996 game-winner against the San Francisco 49ers on an overtime record-breaking 53 yarder that helped the Packers on the road to a Super Bowl championship.

Jacke stands third in total points scored over a Packers career.

Gbaja-Biamila, better known as KGB, is the Packers' all-time sack leader. 

He made the 2003 Pro Bowl, and he even scored a touchdown during an interception return against the Chicago Bears in 2002.

Fischer served as the Packers' team president from 1948-52.  He played a role on the team's executive committee as early as 1935 and was the team's chairman of the board from 1952-58.
