The Green Bay Packers without Donald Driver is like the New England Patriots without Troy Brown.
On Wednesday, Donald Driver will officially announce his retirement in front of fans, coaches, and other members of the Packers family at Lambeau Field.
Before he makes it official, Packers fans like you have the chance to say goodbye to one of the greatest Packers of our generation. Or if you’re a Bears fan, write something not so nice. Or if you just don’t like Driver for some other reason…go nuts
Sign our retirement card for Donald Driver and send him a note of thanks and best wishes. One lucky fan will get a pair of tickets to attend the retirement announcement in person!
The Pack receiving corps won’t be the same without him. As Donald said, “I played my entire career in Green Bay and have always enjoyed a special bond with the fans. I can think of no better way to retire than to celebrate with them and the Packers organization.”

Still, Hawk has been the consistent force...
1) Introduction: Packers outside linebacker Erik Walden came into the 2012 training camp with slim odds of staying on the roster.

In the years since Brett Favre moved on from Green Bay and eventually retired (with pit stops in New York and Minnesota), it’s been discovered that the relationship between the legendary quarterback and his successor, Aaron Rodgers, was bristly at best.
That’s surely why the NFL put the two former MVPs together to present the AP Comeback Player of the Year award at the NFL Honors...

If it is, the time comes for Jennings to decide where he will want to play next. And at least one destination makes a lot of sense.
You may remember that Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers didn’t end well. There was that whole Aaron Rodgers is the guy-taking-your-job / don’t-let-the-door-hit-you-in-the-ass-on the-way-out / what-do-you-mean-you-aren’t-retiring thing.
