Coming Up
  • Sat., Apr. 26, 2014 8:00AM - 6:00PM CDT Packers Pro Shop Tent Sale

    The sale is taking place earlier than in previous years, due to the construction at Lambeau Field and the work that the Pro Shop team must complete in preparation for the new store, which will open this summer. Visitors to Lambeau Field should enter the Atrium through the Oneida Nation Gate. Parking is available in the lot on Lambeau Field’s east side near the Oneida Nation Gate, which can be accessed off Oneida Street and Lombardi Avenue.

    The sale will feature the traditional mix of Pro Shop items greatly reduced in price and other special purchases.

    The team’s football operations staff also has provided Packers team apparel no longer in use, including a large assortment of t-shirts, shorts, jackets, jerseys and pants. Some items are practice-worn gear not normally available in the Pro Shop.

    The tent sale began in 1994 in the parking lot outside the former Pro Shop on the north end of Lambeau Field and grew into a popular event. Now in its 11th year in the Atrium, the tent sale also was held in the west side stadium concourse in previous years.

Team

Chad Brinker
Scouting Assistant

Chad Brinker joins the Packers as a scouting assistant for his first full season with the team, having spent the summer of 2009 as an intern in the team's pro personnel department. He was named to his new position on Jan. 31, 2010.

In his role, Brinker assists player personnel in various areas, including scouting and evaluating college and professional players. His other duties include assisting with college pro-day scouting, advance scouting, and team tryouts.

Brinker was a four-year starter (1999-2002) at running back at Ohio University. As a senior, he ran for a team-leading 1,099 yards and earned first-team All-Mid American Conference honors. He missed all but the first four games of his junior season after having an arachnoid cyst removed from his skull. As a sophomore, he finished second on the team with 734 yards and 10 touchdowns. Brinker remains Ohio's fourth-leading all-time rusher with 2,826 career yards, and his 30 total touchdowns rank second in school history. Brinker also participated in track, running the 60-meter indoor and 100-meter outdoor, as well as taking the role of leadoff man for the 4x100-meter relay team. He holds a Bachelor of Specialized Studies in exercise science.

In 2003, Brinker signed with New York Jets as a non-drafted free agent. He scored two touchdowns in preseason play before being waived in the team's final roster reduction. He was re-signed by the Jets following the 2003 season and was allocated to NFL Europe. He played in two games as a teammate of Packers defensive end Cullen Jenkins with the Cologne Centurions during the 2004 season, averaging 5.7 yards per carry, before suffering a concussion in his third contest. He was placed on injured reserve and was later released by the Jets.

Following his football career, the 30-year-old Brinker began a career in medical-device sales. From 2006 to 2008, he served as the radio color analyst for Ohio University football. During the 2009 season, he was an assistant football coach at Westerville Central High School in Columbus, Ohio, coaching running backs and defensive backs, as well as assisting with the strength and conditioning program.

A four-year letterman at Martins Ferry (Ohio) High School, Brinker rushed for over 3,900 yards in his career, still a school record. He ran for 2,074 yards and 29 touchdowns as a senior, and won the team MVP award. He was a finalist for the Mr. Ohio Football Award as a senior and was twice named all-state, all-district and all-conference. He also lettered multiple times in basketball, baseball and track.

Born in Wheeling, W.Va., Brinker and his wife, Rachelle, reside in De Pere, Wis. He enjoys strength training, reading, writing, snowboarding, traveling and hiking.
