Earl Dotson transferred from Tyler Junior College to Texas A&M Kingsville in 1991 and worked himself into an All-American tackle in 1992. He was selected with a 3rd round choice (81st overall) by the Green Bay Packers in the 1993 NFL Draft. Dotson had most of his second season wiped out by a dislocated shoulder. The following season was a turning point as he established himself as a starter. Dotson would go on to play his entire 10-year career with the Packers and suit up in two Super Bowls, winning one. Overall, he played in 120 regular season games with 88 starts to go along with 12 playoff games. He earned the respect of his teammates as evidenced by his nomination for the Ed Block Courage Award in 2000 for playing through a back injury that season.
Dotson wore this Starter size 52 long jersey for road games during his rookie season. That year, Dotson saw action on special teams. It shows moderate wear. All numbers and stripes are screened on. The jersey features the Packer diamond patch on the left chest to commemorate the team's 75th anniversary. This garment was acquired from the Gridiron Exchange.
