I liked Driver. Hard working, well rounded, heady, team player. Worked his way up the chain to become one of the best WRs in the game for a while. He reminds me of a less flamboyant Hines Ward.

Packers HOFer for sure. I will truly miss watching him, but it was time. He was essentially just the team mascot last year.

Glad to see him call it quits as a Packer. One of the all time fan favorites because of how he made it and how he worked. The guy just wanted to play football, not many guys his age would openly sign up to play special teams.

When opening a new thread in News, you need to start the topic off with your own thoughts. Posting a link and a quote is not sufficient.

Either a new thread can be started by another poster, pursuant to News Forum Guidelines, or the OP can pm a moderator to unlock this thread so the first post can be edited.

Thanks!
