Donald Driver has retired from the Packers. But that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t un-retire.
Driver told FOX Sports Wisconsin that he would play this season if the Packers were to ask him.
“If the Packers called me and said, ‘Drive, come back to training camp,’ I’d be back for training camp,” he said. “But until then, I’ll be sitting at home and just watching football.”
Driver added, however, that he’s not desperate to keep playing, and if any of the NFL’s other 31 teams called, he’d turn them down.
“I love the game, but I only love one team,” Driver said. “When you love the game, you’ll play for anybody. Anybody who offers you something, you’re willing to step on the field and play for them. I decided that I love one team. But I do love the game. At the end of the day, if I get that itch, it would only be for the green and gold.”
It’s extremely unlikely that the 38-year-old Driver would get a call from the Packers after a 2012 season in which he caught just eight passes. But if the Packers suffer multiple receiver injuries, there’s a guy who knows the offense who’s willing to play.
