Donald Driver, Then and Now in Nike

Reader Ben H sends in this interesting tidbit:
I think it’s worth noting that Donald Driver is the only packer player to don both Nike versions of the packer uniform.

That was a long period in between 2000-2012 before switching back to Nike.
It's a great catch, and he's right. Driver's long career is bookended by the two Nike uniform contracts, one with the Packers alone (1997-2000, Driver started playing in 1999) and now with the NFL as a whole (2012).

Here he is an early season:

And earlier this year:

Thanks, Ben!
