Former Packers kicker Errol Mann dies at 71

Posted by Mike Spofford on April 18, 2013 – 3:43 pm

Errol Mann, whose 12-year career as an NFL kicker began in Green Bay in 1968, has died at the age of 71.

As a rookie from North Dakota in 1968, Mann played in just two games for the Packers, going 4-of-4 on PATs and 0-of-3 on FGs. He went on to play eight years for the Detroit Lions, leaving there as the club’s all-time leading scorer. He currently ranks fourth on Detroit’s all-time list with 636 points.

Mann’s career continued with the Oakland Raiders, and he made two FGs in a Super Bowl victory over the Minnesota Vikings following the 1976 season. Mann then led the NFL in scoring with Oakland in 1977 with 99 points.
