Donald Driver open to returning to Green Bay Packers

Green Bay Packers legend Donald Driver decided to hang up his spikes on the 31st of January after catching passes from the likes of Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers for 14 NFL seasons. Driver, 38, has the most receptions and receiving yards in Packers history, and that’s no short feat given the amount of great players who have played for the Green Bay Packers at the wide receiver position. Driver may be retired, but he has always felt that he can still bring something to the table and said that he is open to returning to the Packers in the regular season if they need him.

From Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel , ”I think the thing for me is if the Packers call midseason, I’d be in shape. I’ve been staying in shape.”

Driver can still be a productive wide receiver in this league, and you never know when someone might go down with an injury. That is certainly possible with the Packers wide receivers corps, and they did lose some depth when Greg Jennings decided to spurn the Packers for the rival Minnesota Vikings.

This is definitely something to watch for closely, but the only brief NFL comeback for Driver would come with the Packers, as Driver is too loyal to play for any other team. He added, “I love the game, but I only love one team. When you love the game, you’ll play for anybody. Anybody who offers you something, you’re willing to step on the field and play for them. I decided that I love one team. But I do love the game. At the end of the day, if I get that itch, it would only be for the green and gold.”

Ah, yet another reason why Donald Driver has been one of my favorite wide receivers players of the last decade, and I’m not even a Packers fan.
