During Wednesday’s ESPY awards in Los Angeles, the 37-year-old wide receiver said he plans on playing two more years with the franchise he’s spent the last 13 seasons with.
“I’m going to play two more years, this one, then next year, then I’m completely done,” said Driver, a seventh-round selection in 1999.
Coming into this season, Driver restructured his contract from the $5 million he was scheduled to make to a one year, $2.3 million deal.
The new contract guaranteed Driver $1.2 million and makes it unlikely the Packers would part with him this season.
If Driver’s intention to play two more seasons with the Packers is to be realized, the organization would have to re-sign him at some point during or after this season.
In a 13-year career, Driver has 735 receptions, 10,060 receiving yards with 59 touchdowns, but amassed only 37 catches for 445 yards in 16 games last season for his lowest statistical production since 2001.
