  Packers | Aaron Rodgers calls team different    Fri Jul 19, 01:32 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said the team will be different this season without WRs Greg Jennings and Donald Driver, and CB Charles Woodson on the roster. 'Not having those two and a good friend of mine, Charles Woodson, who I played with for a long time just like those guys - that's different,' Rodgers said. 'So, we're a different football team. Lacking a little in the experience part, but making up for it in the talent and the young guys that we brought in.'

  NFL | Donald Driver would return for Packers    Mon Jun 17, 12:14 PM

Retired WR Donald Driver said Sunday, June 16, that he would come out of retirement if the Green Bay Packers contacted him to do so, but he wouldn't for any other club.

Footballguys view: The Packers will keep that in mind in case of emergency. They have one of the best WR corps in the league but could use Driver in case they suffer injuries at the position.

  Vikings | Interested in Donald Driver    Tue Jan 29, 05:19 PM

The Minnesota Vikings are interested in signing Green Bay Packers WR Donald Driver, who is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent. Although there have been reports that Driver may retire, Driver himself has suggested he may want to keep playing. 'I think I could go to any team and be either their No. 1 or No. 2 guy and be solid for another three years,' Driver said. 'The question is, do I want to see myself in another uniform? Will my family want to see that? If nobody wants to see it, at the end of the day, it will still be a tough decision because I've always said I only want to wear that green and gold and nothing else.'

Footballguys view: The Vikings need an upgrade at the WR position behind Percy Harvin but Driver isn't it. They can add him for veteran depth but looking to get younger at the position is a better idea.

  Packers | Donald Driver leaning toward retirement    Wed Jan 23, 11:36 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Donald Driver managed to catch just eight passes in 2012, and he was inactive for one of the team's two playoff games. As such, he is leaning toward retirement, according to a person informed of Driver's thinking on the matter. However, Driver has yet to make a final decision, but a decision could come as soon as next week.

Footballguys view: Driver's not the same player he used to be and could barely get on the field in 2012.

  Packers | Donald Driver wants to keep playing    Mon Jan 14, 09:30 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Donald Driver, who isn't expected to return to the team next year, wants to continue playing football until he's 40 years old. 'I think I'm just going to see what's out there for me and if teams call and want me to come then I've got to make that decision,' Driver said. 'If not, if the Packers want me back, then I'll come back. So at this point it may not work here, but it may work somewhere else.'

  Packers | Donald Driver plans to play with injury    Wed Dec 5, 11:58 PM

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Donald Driver (thumb) said Wednesday, Dec. 5, that he has a broken thumb, but he plans to play through it. 'I can't do anything about it. One thing about it is it's not the worst that I've hard,' Driver said.

Footballguys view: There's no official word on the playing status of WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring), so having Driver available would help. His role is small with the team today so even if he does play we're not expecting much from him in week 14.

  Packers | James Jones leads team in receiving in Week 8    Sun Oct 28, 06:49 PM

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones led the team with seven grabs and 78 yards in Week 8 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Fellow WR Randall Cobb had five catches for just 28 yards, but he was able to score a touchdown. WR Donald Driver also found the end zone despite making just two catches for 10 yards.

Footballguys view: Jones has been a solid short and intermediate route target, and his value should persist for at least two more games while Greg Jennings is out.

  Packers | Donald Driver not angry about role    Thu Oct 25, 01:59 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Donald Driver said he is not angry about the reduced role he has received this season because he understands that there are wide receivers on the roster that are playing better at this time. 'If you look at the last couple years, my snaps have been reduced, and they've been really reduced this year,' Driver said. 'It's not a bad thing. The thing is there's a lot of guys playing well.'

  Packers | Donald Driver confused with reduced role     Wed Sep 12, 09:20 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Donald Driver said he is puzzled with his limited role in Week 1. Driver said playing only the last three plays in the game was difficult to stomach. 'Played in this league a long time and not to play is tough,' Driver said. 'No one expects it to happen, but if it happens you deal with it. I'm dealing with it in a good way.' Driver could have an increased role in Week 2 if WR Greg Jennings (groin) is limited.

Footballguys view: Driver shouldn't be confused. He's not the same player he used to be and guys like James Jones and Randall Cobb are better options now.

  Packers | Donald Driver hardly sees field    Mon Sep 10, 12:37 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Donald Driver was on the sidelines for all but the final three offensive plays in Week 1 against the San Francisco 49ers.

I'm disappointed we lost the game,' Driver said. 'I'm fine with everything else.'

Green Bay Packers WR Donald Driver appears to be a lock to make the 53-man roster after a solid training camp and preseason. Driver caught three touchdown passes at one early training camp practice, and worked to steadily distance himself from WRs Diondre Borel and Tori Gurley during camp.

  Packers | Donald Driver holding off youngsters    Wed Aug 8, 01:35 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Donald Driver has been having a strong camp, and he still appears capable of helping the team's high-powered offense. He has plenty of confidence, too. 'I think a lot of people are surprised how I've played at 37 years old,' Driver said. 'But if you haven't lost it, you haven't lost it. And I haven't lost anything.' Driver checked in at 194 pounds with body fat under four percent.

Footballguys view: Good news for the old man here. We're not expecting him to be much of a fantasy factor and his number of snaps could get cut in half this year as the team tries to get more playing time for Randall Cobb.

  Packers | Donald Driver wants to play two more seasons     Thu Jul 12, 09:39 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Donald Driver said he expects to play two more seasons in the NFL. 'I'm going to play two more years, this one, then next year, then I'm completely done,' Driver said. '(I'm) gonna put my cleats on the shelf and do something different.'

Footballguys view: Driver may want to play two more years, but he's unlikely to be an impact player anymore. He should get passed on the depth chart by guys like James Jones and Randall Cobb this year.

  Packers | Three expected to be in running for No. 3 WR job    Mon Jul 2, 04:34 PM

Green Bay Packers WRs James Jones, Randall Cobb and Donald Driver are candidates to become the No. 3 wide receiver during training camp.

Footballguys view: We could see Cobb emerge in his second season. Cobb is an ultra fast, quick, and elusive WR who is a dangerous threat after the catch. His skill set makes the most sense as a WR3.

  Packers | Donald Driver still may be on roster bubble    Fri Jun 29, 05:57 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Donald Driver could be on the roster bubble during training camp because the team may want to give WRs Randall Cobb, Tori Gurley and Diondre Borel more playing time this season.

Footballguys view: We think Driver makes the team, but is clearly in the twilight of his career. He'll likely sit behind guys like Cobb as the team tries to work in some younger WRs in the rotation.

  Packers | Diondre Borel, Tori Gurley are long shots to make roster    Wed Jun 13, 01:51 AM

Green Bay Packers WRs Diondre Borel and Tori Gurley are considered long shots to make the team's roster out of training camp due to the return of WR Donald Driver. The Packers have all of their five wideouts returning from last season, and they have next kept six wideouts on its opening day roster during the regime of head coach Mike McCarthy. 'No regrets,' Gurley said. 'I know it's crowded, but it's like that everywhere around the league.'

Footballguys view: Gurley gave up a chance to be part of the Vikings active roster to stay on the Packers practice squad, and it looks like he'll remain there again this season until the Packers suffer a serious injury at wide receiver.

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Donald Driver will receive a total of $2.5 million for the 2012 season, including $500,000 up front.

Footballguys view: The Packers showed loyalty to Driver by keeping him instead of opening up a spot for practice squad wide receiver Tori Gurley. Driver will still only have minimal fantasy value this year.

'We have agreed to terms with the Packers but need to review it tomorrow to finalize,' agent Jordan Woy said via e-mail. Terms of the deal were undisclosed.

Footballguys view: This probably means that Tori Gurley will spend another year on the practice squad and Randall Cobb's coming-out party will be delayed.

Tyler Dunne, from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, reports Packers WR Donald Driver recently said in a radio interview that he's "not going anywhere."

Footballguys view: Driver has expressed his desire to retire with the Packers. He's looking to play one or two more years before hanging up the cleats for good. Driver is not the same player he used to be and will play in a reserve role behind Jordy Nelson, Greg Jennings, and Randall Cobb.
