(WNFL) - Donald Driver is not coming back. Packer fans have been hitting the blogs and radio talk shows, asking whether the 38-year-old receiver can un-retire in the wake of injuries to Jermichael Finley, Randall Cobb, and James Jones.
Driver tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that his agent contacted him, and asked if he would consider it. He said no. Driver says he's too busy catching up with his family, watching his son play football and his daughter in gymnastics. He's also making the national media circuit to promote his new book "Driven."
Driver retired last year as Green Bay's all-time leading receiver. He played all 14 of his N-F-L seasons with the Pack. Driver said he's not sure what he'll be doing five years from now, but he probably won't be a coach. He says it's too time consuming. As for the current Packers, Driver says they can bounce back from all their injuries. He expects rookie Eddie Lacy to keep running well -- and he says back-ups like Jarrett Boykin and Andrew Quarless need to step up. Driver calls the Green Bay offensive line "amazing" -- and they're doing a great job of protecting quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
