Donald Driver in Green Bay Wednesday for OTAs
GREEN BAY (AP) — Wide receiver Donald Driver is hinting he has a deal in place to return to the Green Bay Packers.
In a post on his Twitter account Tuesday night, May 29th, Driver said: “When I said I will be a Packer for life. It is now true. Packer for life.”
Driver was back in Green Bay Wednesday, May 30th for “organized team activities (OTAs).” He did not participate in team drills, but did do some individual work.
“I’ve always said I want to play as long as I can. If God continues to tell me after this season and next season I can continue to play, I’m going to continue to play. I can’t predict when I am going to stop playing. I think you know when it’s over, and right now, I am in great shape and it’s not over yet,” Driver said Wednesday.
“It’s fun. You could tell he was definitely excited to get back in here today. He is one of the best leaders we have on this team. To see him back in here was fun,” Packers Left Guard T.J. Lang said.
“Donald is going to bring tons of energy. He’s going to joke around and play around and just be him, so pretty excited to have him back,” Packers Tight End Jermichael Finley said.
OTAs are voluntary, but when asked whether he wanted to take a break after Dancing with the Stars, he said no, saying he always wants to be in Green Bay working hard and getting better.
Driver is the team’s all-time leader with 735 catches for 10,060 yards. He said after the Packers’ playoff loss to the New York Giants that he wasn’t sure if the team would bring him back.
Driver won ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” last week.
