Super Bowl champions Jordy Nelson and Josh Sitton will be the next members of the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, the team announced Tuesday, Nov. 1.

Nelson and Sitton will be inducted at the 52nd Hall of Fame Induction Banquet, scheduled for Aug. 31, 2023 in the Lambeau Field Atrium. Ticket information will be released in "near future," a news release said.

Originally established in 1967 as a temporary display in the concourse of the Brown County Veterans Memorial Arena, the Packers Hall of Fame moved into its own facility in 1976 near Lambeau Field. In 2003, it was relocated to the lower level of the Lambeau Field Atrium. After renovations beginning in 2013, it reopened in August 2015, and is now located on the main floor of the atrium.

Nelson was selected to the Pro Bowl and named second-team All-Pro by The Associated Press for his performance during the 2014 season in which he set career highs in receptions and receiving yards while also hauling in 13 touchdowns. After missing the 2015 season due to a knee injury, Nelson became the first Packers player to be named the NFL Comeback Player of the Year by AP.

In the team's Super Bowl XLV victory, Nelson became just the fourth receiver in Super Bowl history with nine-plus receptions for at least 140 yards and a touchdown. Nelson finished his career playing one season with the Oakland Raiders.
