Getty Images There’s been a lot of speculation this offseason on whether or not Green Bay Packer wide receiver Donald Driver will be on the roster for the 2012 season. Driver has the attitude that he’s not going anywhere, since he’s still under contract with the Packers for this coming season. “I think so many people right now are worried if I’m going to be a Packer,” Driver said.. “I’m still under contract. My contract is not over with the Packers. I will be a Packer for life. I don’t think that’s ever going to change. I think that’s what I want the fans to understand. Don’t worry. If you haven’t heard it from me or you haven’t heard it from the Packers, you can’t listen to the reporters, the media. … You have to trust me, and you also have to trust the Packers that I will be a Packer for life.” The 37 year-old Driver is due to make $2.6 million for this coming season.  But the Packers are also on the books to pay him an additional $1.5 million roster bonus on July 25th.
