He earned USA Today All-Pro honors in 1999 and went to the Pro Bowl in 1996. Overall, he played in 156 of a possible 176 regular-season games for the Packers. He was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 2008.
Marco Riverawas selected by the Packers in the sixth round of the 1996 draft and spent nine seasons with the team. He started seven consecutive seasons at guard, the second-longest streak for a guard in team history. Consistently paving the way for successful offenses, Rivera was selected to three Pro Bowls (2002-04). Rivera was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 2011.
