No one can say Aaron Kampman isn’t a classy guy.
Kampman, who signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars early in free agency, took out an ad in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel thanking the Green Bay Packers, fans and the community.
It reads, in part:
It’s been an honor to serve this community for the past eight years as a member of the legendary Green Bay Packer organization. Linde and I thank God for the years we’ve spent in Wisconsin, and we thank you for welcoming us with open arms.
We’ve certainly been hard on Kampman over the past year for his sub-par play, but he’ll always be a member of the Packers family.

It sucks we lost such a class act. One of my all-time favorites to wear green and gold.
A class act. Yes we were hard on him, but everyone…including #74 knew it wouldn’t last here.
Well played, Aaron.
This guy will always be a “Packer” no matter what uniform he is wearing… I suspect that after his playing days are over we will see him again at Packer alumni events and even perhaps the Packer HOF
Note he signed the thank you with 2 Corinthians 5:17,21 which starts:
“There, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old is gone and the new has come!”
I’m sure Aaron would love it if you pulled out a Bible and read the rest for yourself-
We’ll miss you Aaron!
Good Luck Aaron the system here was not right for you to stay but many apperciated your play while you were here!
Now that’s class.
I can only hope that when he retires he comes back to the Packers, signs again then retire as a Packer.
A real class act!
