Rodgers: Trick play 'not a very intelligent call'

Driver: Im just trying to keep myself out there

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Donald Driver is a four-time Pro Bowl selection, the Green Bay Packers' all-time leader in receptions and receiving yards, a Super Bowl champion and a "Dancing with the Stars" winner.
