Howie Ferguson earned his pro football career the hard way – first in the Los Angeles Rams’ training camp, then in 1953 with the Green Bay Packers.
Ferguson, who never played college football, was a hard-nosed runner who signed with the Packers as a free agent in 1953. The 6’2”, 210-pound Ferguson gained 2,120 yards rushing and 1,079 yards receiving with the Packers between 1953 and ’58.
Ferguson was named to the 1956 Pro Bowl. Multiple injuries forced him to retire during training camp in 1959.
