Posted Jan. 31, 2013
Driver is retiring, with a formal announcement planned next week for the Green Bay Packers all-time leading receiver.||||||| Driver finishes as the Packers all-time leader in yards receiving (10,137 yards) and catches (743), and is third behind Don Hutson and Sterling Sharpe with 61 touchdown receptions. He had seven 1,000-yard seasons, also a Packers record for a receiver.
Posted Jan. 12, 2013
Driver is active for Green Bay's playoff game against San Francisco.||||||| The veteran wide receiver was a healthy scratch last week against Minnesota.
Posted Feb. 29, 2012
The Green Bay Packers' all-time leading receiver Donald Driver is set to join the cast of the ABC show "Dancing With the Stars."||||||| The four-time Pro Bowl receiver will be part of a celebrity lineup that includes actor Jack Wagner, actress Melissa Gilbert, tennis legend Martina Navratilova and Motown great Gladys Knight. The new cast and their professional dance partners were revealed on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Tuesday. Season 14 of "Dancing With the Stars" begins Monday, March 19.

Driver has a year left on his contract and has been a vital part of the Packers offense over his 13-year career. He is the franchise's all-time leader in catches and yards receiving. If it was up to him, he'd stay.||||||| But Driver will turn 37 next month. And given the Packers' youth-first philosophy, Driver knows there's no guarantee the team will bring him back. "I don't make any decisions," Driver said. "This is a business, and if they decide to go a different route with the young players, then I've got to go do what I want to do."
Posted Oct. 17, 2011
Driver had three catches for 25 yards and one score Sunday in a 24-3 win over the winless Rams.||||||| Driver is fifth on the team with two TD catches and the Packers have better talent at his position, making his fantasy output murky at best.
