For years, Don Hutson was recognized as the franchise leader in receptions and receiving yards for the Green Bay Packers. However, when Billy Howton came along, the record books had to be rewritten. The standout wide receiver started out strong in his rookie season when he caught 13 touchdown passes, and he continued to exhibit his considerable talents all throughout his 12-year career. As a rookie, Howton also racked up 1,231 total receiving yards, and in 1956 he was able to tally 256 receiving yards during a game against the Rams. Today, these numbers still stand as records for the Packers franchise.
