GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It seems that Donald Driver may be returning to the Green Bay Packers for a 14th season.Driver, the franchise's all-time leading receiver, posted a message on Twitter that indicates he'll again be catching passes from NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers next season and continue adding to his record numbers in Green Bay."Hello everyone: I'm a packer for life," Driver tweeted. "It will never change. Go Pack Go!!!!"Currently a finalist on "Dancing with the Stars," Driver has not been able to join the Packers for any of the team's offseason workouts thus far.Driver's agent, Jordan Woy, later posted on Twitter: "Donald Driver is doing great on DWTS and he is 100 playing football this season."That tweet has since been deleted.However, what Woy did not make clear on Twitter is whether it's the Packers that Driver would be playing football for this season.In an email to Pro Football Talk, Woy wrote, "The Packers have always wanted Donald back and we have always planned on him playing there. He has been busy with the DWTS show and the team knows that."I discussed deal structure with the team a while ago and we will work out the details once Donald returns to Green Bay."When asked about Driver's status with the Packers during draft weekend, both general manager Ted Thompson and coach Mike McCarthy didn't say much."I would never speculate on something like that," Thompson said. "He's dancing right now. He's doing good, too."McCarthy later added, "No reason to speculate on that. I'm just going to follow Ted's answer to that question."At the end of the season, Driver emphasized that he wanted to stay with the Packers but was willing to play elsewhere if Green Bay released him."I've always said I wanted to play until I'm 40," Driver said as he cleaned out his locker following the Packers' playoff loss to the Giants in January. "My goal is just to continue to play. If I get an opportunity to come back and play, I will. If not, I'll go somewhere else and play and I'll see them down the road. The thing is, it's not up to me. The Packers have to make that decision."Driver's production drastically declined from the 2009 season to the Packers' Super Bowl-winning season in 2010. Driver had gained more than 1,000 yards receiving in six consecutive seasons from 2004 to 2009, but in the last two seasons, he's had only 565 yards in 2010 and 445 yards last year."If they decide to go a different route with the young players, then I've got to go do what I want to do," Driver said in January. "Right now, I'm not ready to put the cleats up (and retire), so I guess I'll be going somewhere else to play (if released)."In the meantime, Driver has an opportunity next week to be the third NFL player to win "Dancing with the Stars" in the show's 14 seasons. Former Dallas Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith and former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward both previously won the dancing competition.Follow Paul Imig on Twitter
