Yet another Green Bay Packers great who wrapped up his career in Vikings purple, Paul Coffman was an undrafted free agent out of Kansas State who worked his way to three Pro Bowls and a spot in the Packers Hall of Fame.  Coffman teamed with wide receivers James Lofton and John Jefferson to give quarterback Lynn Dickey an explosive aerial arsenal for the Packers squads of the early 1980s.  He was a Pro Bowl selection from 1982-1984 and is arguably the best tight end in Packers history.  After years of tormenting the Vikings, Coffman joined them for his final season in 1988.  He played in eight games for the Vikings and did not catch a pass.
