GREEN BAY, WI (WHBL) - Ryan Longwell will retire as a Packer. The team said yesterday it approved the kicker’s request to officially end his pro career with the Packers, although he won’t play anymore. Longwell is Green Bay’s all-time scoring leader with 1,054 points. He set a team record by leading the Packers in scoring in all nine of his seasons there, from 1997 through 2005. He also scored the most points in the NFL from ’97 through 2004 with 964. Longwell made 81-percent of his field-goal attempts with Green Bay - also a team record. He went on to play six more successful years in Minnesota, ending in 2011. Last season, the Seattle Seahawks signed Longwell for a divisional playoff game against Atlanta. He went 4 for 4 in extra points in that contest.
