Default Donald Driver officially announces retirement.

The Donald, DD, officially announced his retired from the NFL and the Green Bay Packers today. It is a bitter sweet day for me and I am sure the rest of the Packers fandom because it is sad to see him go, but great to see him go out a Packer. He never wore anything but green and gold. He will be sorely missed, as he always had an upbeat attitude, and had a smile that could make anyone instantly feel better.

One of these days I will lucky enough to snag an auto or patch card of his, and add it to my PC.

Thanks for the awesome memories, Donald! My personal favorite memory of you this season? The rocket of a pass that you caught from Aaron Rodgers for a TD against the Bears on TNF. Awesome.

I wonder why he waited until a season after he retired to announce his retirement...I kid, I kid.

He was always one of my favorite guys to draft in PPR back in the day

One of my all-time faves. Gotta love it when a guy has a long productive career and stays with the same team throughout. Class act and a true NFL great. Farewell, DD.

Really sad to see him go. Knew it was going to come this offseason but that still doesnt make it any easier when it is officially announced. One of my favorite Packer players of all time. Feel the need to show off a few of the Driver cards I have scanned at this time

Those are some NICE DD's! I only have base Donald Driver cards, but they loved none-the-less!

Driver is THE MAN.
Aside from being a selfless, class-act and great person, I have the utmost respect for players that stick with one team their entire career. In today's free-agent happy business, it's refreshing to see a team-first attitude. WI will forever love DD.
