Nothing from the Green Bay Packers yet, but former Packers tight end Mark Chmura, appearing on Steve the Homer True’s radio show on ESPN 540 in Milwaukee, said he will be inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame next summer.
Chmura didn’t say who else would make up the 2010 Packers Hall of Fame class.
Chmura played his entire NFL career in Green Bay (1993-1999) and was voted to three Pro Bowl teams.
In 1997, Chmura refused to meet with United States President Bill Clinton at the White House following the Packers Super Bowl XXXI win. Chmura said at the time that he had lost respect for President Clinton over the Monica Lewinsky scandal and could not bear to shake his hand.
Although Chmura’s five-year contract was not due to expire until 2003, he was released by the Packers in 2000. Chmura was accused of having had inappropriate sexual contact on April 8, 2000 at a Waukesha Catholic Memorial High School prom party with the then 17-year-old babysitter of his children. Chmura was tried but found not guilty of all charges. Two days after being acquitted of child enticement and third-degree sexual assault, Chmura acknowledged that his behavior at a post-prom party “wasn’t something a married man should do”.
