Former Green Bay Packers defensiveback Bob Jeter died of a heart attack Thursday at his home in Chicago.  Jeter was 71.

Jeter played eight seasons in Green Bay (1963-70) and was a two-time Pro Bowl participant.  He played on the 1965 NFL Championship team and the first two Super Bowls. 

Jeter played wide receiver his first two seasons on the Packers' active roster before Lombardi switched him to cornerback in 1965.  Jeter was a starter for five seasons in Green Bay and made the Pro Bowl in 1967 and 1969.  He was traded to the Bears in 1971 and played three seasons in Chicago.

In 11 NFL seasons, Jeter had 26 interceptions and was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 1985.
