Packers Obtain Henry Jordan from Cleveland
Sept. 14, 1959 – For the price of a fourth-round draft choice, Green Bay Packers coach Vince Lombardi lands a future Hall of Fame defensive tackle. That’s the modest sum Green Bay’s headmaster pays to obtain Henry Jordan from the Cleveland Browns. Jordan, who was drafted in the fifth round in 1957 by Cleveland, goes on to play in 139 regular-season games for the Packers and recovers 20 fumbles. In 1995, 18 years after his death, he is inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
