Donald Driver started his career with the Green Bay Packers as a seventh-round draft pick who battled to make the roster, then barely saw the field. He finishes his career as the storied franchise's all-time leader in receptions and receiving yards.
The Packers announced Driver's retirement Thursday morning via a press release. The team will hold an official ceremony on Feb. 6 at Lambeau Field.
Driver had 37 receptions through the first three seasons of his career, but he emerged as one of Brett Favre's favorite targets during the 1990s, and then provided a bridge to the Aaron Rodgers era. He ranks second in team history in games played (205) behind only Favre.
