Donald Driver has been with the Green Bay Packers since being selected by the team as a seventh-round draft pick in 1999. He has won a Super Bowl with the team and has become the franchise's all-time leader in receptions and receiving yards. Now it appears as though he will remain on with the team for the remainder of his playing years.
Lance Allan of NBC Milwaukee reported on Tuesday that he received an email from Driver's agent, Jordan Woy, stating that Driver and the Packers have agreed to terms on a new contract but intend to meet with the team on Wednesday to finalize a deal.
