Packers WR Donald Driver calls it a careerSubmitted: 02/06/2013
Story By Associated Press

GREEN BAY - Donald Driver rewrote the Green Bay Packers record books and on Wednesday morning, the wildly popular wide receiver might've rewritten the book on how a player should call it a career.

Officially retiring after 14 seasons - all with the Packers, something that was extremely important to him - the franchise's all-time leading receiver celebrated his career during an unprecedented event inside the Lambeau Field atrium with 1,500 fans, his family, Packers coaches, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Green Bay mayor Jim Schmitt and a handful of teammates.


Driver says it was a tough decision but he's ready for the next chapter in his life. He retires after catching 743 passes for 10,137 yards, making the team as a seventh-round draft pick out of Alcorn State in 1999.
