Remembering Bob Jeter...

He later starred as a running back in college at the University of Iowa and then as a cornerback with the Green Bay Packers, playing in the first two Super Bowls. He played for the Packers from 1963-70 and was with the Chicago Bears from 1971-73. He was inducted in 1985 into the Packers Hall of Fame as well as the Daper Dan Hall of Fame.
