He made the announcement on “Mike and Mike” on ESPN Radio this morning from New Orleans, Louisiana. He said he will make the big announcement on February 6th in front of the Green Bay Packers fans.

He has spent his entire career with the Green Bay Packers. His career spanned 14 seasons with the Packers after being drafted with the 213th pick in the 7th round in the 1999 NFL draft.

There was some speculation that Driver may sign with their arch rival, the Minnesota Vikings, as of Wednesday. But that will not happen now with Driver walking away from the game.

He ended his career with 743 receptions for 10,137 receiving yards. He also had 61 receiving touchdowns.

He is the Packers receptions all-time leader and their receiving yards all-time leader, as well. He was the Packers MVP in 2002.

He was a member of the Packers that won Super Bowl XLV over the New England Patriots. He also made the Pro Bowl in 2002, 2006, 2007, and 2010.
