The longtime Packers trainer is calling it a career this summer. For more than two decades, Pepper Burruss has been a fixture in the Green Bay Packers’ locker room. More specifically, Burruss has been in charge of the training room, serving as the team’s chief athletic trainer for over 22 years and working in Green Bay for the last 26.
Now, Burruss’ time with the Packers has come to an end. Mike Spofford of Packers.com, in a profile published Monday, revealed that Burress’ duties with the team are over, coinciding with the end of minicamp a week ago.
The Packers had already begun preparing for this transition a few years ago, however. That started four years ago, when the team promoted Burress to a new position, director of sports medicine management. That opened the door for Bryan Engel, who served as an assistant trainer for 16 years, to take over the head trainer’s position. Burruss’ new position gave him responsibility for all medical decisions in the organization, placing him above both the training and medical staffs in the team hierarchy.
In recent years, Burress has overseen the training regimen for a team that has had some injury struggles. Since Aaron Rodgers took over as the team’s starting quarterback in 2008, the Packers rank seventh in terms of most Adjusted Games Lost, according to research by APC’s Peter Bukowski in that stat compiled by Football Outsiders. In the past four years, with Burruss as director, the team has finished 21st, 21st, 15th, and 9th in that stat.
These numbers do not suggest that Burruss has led a poor program; in fact, the Packers’ players seem to love him, as shown by reactions to this profile on social media. Oren Burks and Kenny Clark were two players who showed their appreciation for Burress on Monday.
Burress did reveal his intention to remain in Green Bay, the place where he and his wife have called home since arriving in the early 1990s. At that time, he came over from the New York Jets after having a prior working relationship there with new Packers GM Ron Wolf.
Good luck to Burress in the next phase of his life.

The last couple of years have brought generational change to the Packers organization. It's continuing now, with longtime head athletic trainer Pepper Burruss retiring — ending an NFL career that began three years before coach Matt LaFleur was born. Burruss has been with the Packers the last 26 years, after spending the first 16 years [more]

Does this mean they will have fewer hammy pulls?

Quote:
The 65-year-old Burruss was named the the NFL Physicians Society’s Outstanding NFL Athletic Trainer in 2012, and his staffs were twice named athletic training staff of the year.


I found this part interesting.

Zero2Cool (20h) : Why spend 160 hours getting a new version vs spending 320 building exactly what I want?

gbguy20 (13-Jul) : ng, thus allowing everything to fit properly. im assuming that isn't as easy as it sounds.
gbguy20 (13-Jul) : may or may not be a really quick experiment. but, everything on packerpeople.com is huge, and super spaced out. if it is possible to reduce the overall forum font size that might also change the spaci
Zero2Cool (12-Jul) : gbguy, it's far from done yet, i just don't know your specific pain point. I know subforums need moved.
Porforis (12-Jul) : Not to be an enabler, but why would you want to break it?
gbguy20 (12-Jul) : it might help me break my packers reading addiction though. so maybe its a good thing.
gbguy20 (12-Jul) : i know it sounds dumb, maybe its a different experience on your device. but on my 2 devices its different enough where it is very unuserfriendly
Zero2Cool (12-Jul) : I'll have to look into that gbguy and make it gooder.
Cheesey (12-Jul) : Yup gbguy. Not everyone has money to spend on “extras”. I know exactly what you mean.
gbguy20 (12-Jul) : nsd. because I don't have extra spending money and I can't justify paying even $50 when I currently have a working phone that for the most part does the job
gbguy20 (12-Jul) : nsd
gbguy20 (12-Jul) : it's horribly different kevin. on this forum i get to where i want to be in 1 click and no scrolling. on that forum there is a lot of leg work to get to anything relevant.

Zero2Cool (12-Jul) : How? it is not much different lol
gbguy20 (12-Jul) : took me 20 minutes to navigate that forum to test it but yes it works on that version.
Zero2Cool (11-Jul) : same thing happen on packerpeople.com?
gbguy20 (11-Jul) : yes
Zero2Cool (11-Jul) : On PackersHome?

gbguy20 (9-Jul) : checked it out. still have to scroll forever to get to an active thread. why is everything so spaced out?
