When it comes to fans buying NFL jerseys, you won’t find too many people looking to purchase the jerseys of offensive linemen. These are the players that are in the trenches and you only hear their name if they screw up too much.
Geoff Schwartz played eight seasons in the NFL for five different teams. He started at right tackle for the University of Oregon for three seasons and was a second-team All-Pac-12 selection his senior year.
He was drafted by the Panthers in the seventh round of the 2008 NFL Draft. He went on to play for the Vikings, Chiefs, Giants, and Lions.
In 2017, he announced his retirement from the league.
He is one of those players who doesn’t expect to ever see his jersey being worn by fans. Something changed two years after his retirement, because somebody actually went out and purchased his jersey.
Schwartz showed off the money he got for that purchase, which was less than two dollars.
