Former Green Bay Packers great LeRoy Butler, considered the inventor of the Lambeau Leap, is once again among the 26 semifinalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Butler has been a finalist each of the last two years, and missed enshrinement due in part to some high profile first year eligible players such as Peyton Manning and Charles Woodson in 2021.

A four time All-Pro selection, Butler is the only player in NFL history to record both 20 sacks and 20 interceptions in a career. He is also the only member of the All-1990s team not enshrined in Canton, Ohio.

This year’s class includes 13 defensive players with four defensive backs among the semifinalists.
