KGB Released - Shows Class

KGB's productive career in Green Bay has ended. He never regained his form after off season knee surgery and was basically a non-factor this year. He leaves the team as the Packers all time sacks leader and issued this classy statement. Good luck KGB:

“My nine years as a Green Bay Packer have been a blessing that is beyond words. I thank God for bringing me to this first-class organization and first-class community. During my time here, I’ve built relationships with a number of people in the Packer family. The front office executives, G.M.s, coaches, past and present players, the enormous support and administrative staff plus the greatest fans in football, all have helped make my time here truly special and I am thankful for that. It has been a very positive experience. I was able to build a family here and grow with a community that I call home. Again, I’ve been truly blessed. I don’t know what my football future holds, but one thing I’ve realized is that football is more than a game — it’s about building relationships and changing lives. One of the commitments I’ve had throughout my career has been to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and that is something that I intend on doing whether on the field or not. God bless the Green Bay Packers!”

As soon as I saw that comment earlier today I thought that was one of the classiest ways to leave a franchise that I have ever seen. Welcome to the Packer hall of fame KGB.

Still though, K-Bye.....

When he says Jesus Christ and God - he's talking about Ted Thompson, right?

Its a shame we have to let go of such a great human being. Classy guy, and I look forward to the day we put him in the GB HOF.

wouldn't be surprised if the bears sign him, if nothing else to provide intel for the 2 (very important) games we still have against them.

Matt, nope. Mike Sherman.

Kabeer and his wife are fantastic. It would not surprise me at all if he retired from football and continued with the other things in his life. He has a bright future ahead of him, whatever he chooses.
