The conversion includes a coloring or the receiver's "skin," and the penciling in of Driver's name on the back of the uniform.  It's worth noting that this honor was cooked up by the "city" of Green Bay, and not necessarily the Packers franchise, and it comes at a time when Brett Favre is so desparate to for the Packers to recognize his time with the team, that he has stooped to taking the blame for the circumstances that led to Favre's leaving the team and predicting that current Packer QB, Aaron Rodgers, will break Favre's records.
