Packers | Aaron Rodgers calls team different

Fri, 19 Jul 2013 10:32:09 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said the team will be different this season without WRs Greg Jennings and Donald Driver, and CB Charles Woodson on the roster. "Not having those two and a good friend of mine, Charles Woodson, who I played with for a long time just like those guys - that's different," Rodgers said. "So, we're a different football team. Lacking a little in the experience part, but making up for it in the talent and the young guys that we brought in."

Vikings | Interested in Donald Driver

Tue, 29 Jan 2013 14:19:49 -0800

The Minnesota Vikings are interested in signing Green Bay Packers WR Donald Driver, who is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent. Although there have been reports that Driver may retire, Driver himself has suggested he may want to keep playing. "I think I could go to any team and be either their No. 1 or No. 2 guy and be solid for another three years," Driver said. "The question is, do I want to see myself in another uniform? Will my family want to see that? If nobody wants to see it, at the end of the day, it will still be a tough decision because I've always said I only want to wear that green and gold and nothing else."

Packers | Donald Driver to have bigger role

Sun, 28 Oct 2012 09:07:48 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Donald Driver is expected to have a bigger role in Week 8 against the Jacksonville Jaguars with WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring) inactive.

Fantasy Tip: Driver is a deep sleeper only worth using as a No. 4 WR or 'flex' option in most leagues. He is also a decent late replacement in case you're scrambling to fill Nelson's spot.

Packers | Donald Driver not angry about role

Thu, 25 Oct 2012 10:59:06 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Donald Driver said he is not angry about the reduced role he has received this season because he understands that there are wide receivers on the roster that are playing better at this time.

Packers | Donald Driver confused with reduced role

Wed, 12 Sep 2012 06:20:26 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Donald Driver said he is puzzled with his limited role in Week 1. Driver said playing only the last three plays in the game was difficult to stomach. "Played in this league a long time and not to play is tough," Driver said. "No one expects it to happen, but if it happens you deal with it. I'm dealing with it in a good way." Driver could have an increased role in Week 2 if WR Greg Jennings (groin) is limited.

Sun, 09 Sep 2012 21:37:22 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Donald Driver was on the sidelines for all but the final three offensive plays in Week 1 against the San Francisco 49ers. The only reason he got onto the field was because WR Greg Jennings called for a replacement. Driver was still positive afterwards. "That's the whole thing. I'm disappointed we lost the game," Driver said. "I'm fine with everything else."

Green Bay Packers WR Donald Driver has been having a strong camp, and he still appears capable of helping the team's high-powered offense. He has plenty of confidence, too.

Tue, 12 Jun 2012 22:51:42 -0700

Green Bay Packers WRs Diondre Borel and Tori Gurley are considered long shots to make the team's roster out of training camp due to the return of WR Donald Driver. The Packers have all of their five wideouts returning from last season, and they have kept six wideouts on their opening day roster during the regime of head coach Mike McCarthy. "No regrets," Gurley said. "I know it's crowded, but it's like that everywhere around the league."
