The Packers announced they have hired Grey Ruegamer as director of player engagement.

Ruegamer played 11 seasons in the NFL on the offensive line, appearing in 124 games with 17 starts during the regular season and 12 contests with two starts in the postseason.

He was a third-round selection of the Dolphins in the 1999 NFL Draft. Ruegamer spent three seasons with the Patriots (2000-02) and played three years for the Packers (2003-05) before spending the final three seasons of his career with the Giants (2006-09).

Ruegamer was a member of two Super Bowl champion teams, the 2001 New England Patriots and the 2007 New York Giants.

During the 2004 season with the Packers, he started 11 games on a line that set single-season team records for fewest sacks allowed (14), first downs (354), net yards (6,357), and net passing yards (4,449).

  1. That’s a pretty good pedigree. Mike Sherman was a terrible GM but a fairly decent coach, Tom Coughlin’s record speaks for itself, and Bill Belichick is the best coach AND best GM in the league, if not the best ever. Playing for those guys, Ruegamer had to learn a lot, even by accident.

    As GM, I don’t think he’s as bad as Packer fans seem to remember.

    A number of his acquisitions contributed to the 2007 team that almost went to the Super Bowl. KEY contributors (Al Harris, Aaron Kampman, Cullen Jenkins, Nick Barnett)

    As coach.. meh.. pretty similar to McCarthy. Great in the Fall, hazardous to your health in the Winter.
