Green Bay - The team just sent out this press release:
Former wide receiver Bill Schroeder, who spent five seasons (1997-2001) in Green Bay, has informed the club of his decision to retire with the Packers. Green Bay Packers Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson made the announcement. "Bill Schroeder was a productive player for us on the field and contributed greatly to our efforts in the local community," Thompson said. "He was a local boy who made good, and we're pleased to welcome Bill as a member of our alumni."A native of Sheboygan, Wis. and a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, Schroeder played eight seasons in the National Football League, including stints in Detroit (2002-03) and Tampa Bay (2004). In his five seasons with the Packers, he played in 74 games and made 225 catches for 3,435 yards and 20 touchdowns."It was a great privilege to have played for the Packers for the majority of my NFL career," Schroeder said. "I am honored that the Green Bay Packers have allowed me to end my playing days as a member of one of the greatest franchises in professional sports. I look forward to my continued relationship with the team and helping them and the community in any way possible."While with the Packers, Schroeder was recognized by the Green Bay Area Chamber of Commerce for his continued service in the community. He also took an active role in the Packers' efforts to redevelop Lambeau Field, lobbying on behalf of the team at numerous functions.
