Ohhhh, there’s going to be a huge demand for a new item on PackerProShop.com.
The Green Bay Packers are now selling Vince Biegel’s professional jersey at PackerProShop.com. The former Wisconsin Badgers outside linebacker and 2016 captain, selected with the first pick in the fourth round (108th overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft on Saturday, tweeted the news late Tuesday night.
There is already a backorder date of May 25 for the jersey, but whether or not that’s due to the high demand or just an expected delay from the freshness of the draft finishing this past weekend remains to be seen.
I'm proud to say you can now order your OFFICIAL Vince Biegel Green Bay Packer jersey at:https://t.co/dtbZ2d7Jxb— Vince Biegel (@VinceBiegel) May 3, 2017
Regardless, it should be a hot seller for the large cross-section of fans who support both UW and the fan-owned NFL franchise.
Biegel will wear No. 45 for the Packers, his high school number and the number worn by his father, Rocky, a former BYU linebacker. Vince spoke about wearing his dad’s number on Wednesday morning with Chuck and Winkler on Milwaukee station WSSP (105.7 The Fan).
