Wednesday, WR Donald Driver’s career officially came to an end with the Green Bay Packers. He spent the last 14 seasons with the Packers, and yesterday they had a celebration at Lambeau Field filled with fans where Donald then made the official announcement of his retirement.
During the ceremony, Donald also promised his fans that he would never wear another uniform. He said,
“I promise you all I will never wear another uniform. Today we make that official. I have to keep my loyalty to you.”
Then Driver went on to say, according to nfl.com,
“Even though I feel that I can still play the game, God has made the answer clear to me, the time is now. I have to retire a Green Bay Packer. I’ve always said I never wanted to wear another uniform, but always the green and gold.”
If a player ever had so much love and respect for his team and fans, it was Donald. The governor of Green Bay even declared yesterday as “Donald Driver Day”!
Donald will be missed very much on the field, but never forgotten!
