5. Antonio Freeman

Antonio Freeman excited fans as both a punt returner and a TD machine during his eight season stay in Green Bay. But what really separates him from pack was his ability as a prime playoff performer. Freeman played his best in the postseason, especially in Super Bowls. One of his best among many acrobatic catches was an 81-yard strike from Brett Favre in the Pack’s Super Bowl XXXI defeat of New England.

However, his most amazing and best remembered reception came in a rainy November Monday Night Football matchup with Minnesota. I won’t even try to explain it because it’s basically indescribable. Many of you have seen it multiple times, but it’s well worth watching over and over again. Anyway, Freeman was the Packers leading receiver for four years including his 1998 Pro Bowl season in which he also led the league. With 6,651 yards and 57 TDs, he was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame and rounds out the top five of Titletown’s best wide receivers.
