The Pro Football Hall of Fame welcomed the Class of 2015 on Thursday night in Canton, Ohio. One of the gold jacket recipients was former Green Bay Packers general manager Ron Wolf.

Wolf served as the Packers' GM from 1991-2001 and is credited with reviving the franchise during his tenure. There to present the Green Bay legend with his gold jacket was Wolf's son, Elliot, who currently serves as the team's director of player personnel.

"It feels marvelous to be associated with the great group that makes this the best game that ever was," Wolf said, via the Packers' official website.

Wolf's career-defining moves as GM were trading for quarterback Brett Favre in 1992 and signing defensive end Reggie White in free agency the following year. White is already in the Hall of Fame (Class of 2006) and Favre is not far behind.
