Donald Driver is calling it a career. Packers.com reported Thursday morning the team's all time leader in catches and receiving yards will formally announce his retirement at a public ceremony next Wednesday, February 6 at Lambeau Field. In a statement released by the team, Driver said, "I played my entire career in Green Bay and have always enjoyed a special bond with the fans. I can't think of no better way to retire than to celebrate with them and the Packers organization." A long shot 7th round draft pick out of Alcorn State in 1999, Driver perservered to break franchise records for receptions (743), receiving yards (10,137) along with 7, 1000 yard seasons and making a catch in 133 consecutive games. Driver's role was greatly reduced in 2012 with the emergence of Randall Cobb, making only 8 catches with two touchdowns. Fans are invited to attend the formal retirement by picking up tickets, free of charge on a first come, first served basis beginning Friday morning at 9:00 AM from the Packer ticket office. There's a limit of four tickets per person.
