Driver Agrees To Restructured Deal

Donald Driver

Well, we knew this day was coming and it’s really no surprise it happened now — the Green Bay Packers and receiver Donald Driver have agreed to a restructured contract.

The deal, which likely contains a considerable pay cut, is aimed at keeping Driver with the Packers for the remainder of his career. Terms have not been released, although Driver said he expects to play another year or two before retiring.

Driver was set to have a salary cap number of $5 million in 2012 under his old deal. He’ll likely get less than half that with his new deal.

The 37-year-old is the Packers all-time leading receiver, but had only 37 catches in 2011. He’ll likely be the Packers fifth receiver this season if he makes the team.

    For what? Miami could have had Jones for nothing last offseason.

    This is the NFL, which means NO TRADES.

      Well unless they plan on keeping 7 wr either they are going to have to cut a guy they could get value for or trade him.

    Why do people want to trade Jones he is a very good receiver, he can even be better than Driver this year. Hate that Jones is the black sheep of the receivers look at what he has done for this team.

      It’s not that I hate him it’s that he’s the least talented of the group they have and this is a what have you done for me lately league. You can’t keep 7 wr so someone has to go and he’s the most logical to trade.

    JJ is worth no more than a 4th round pick to Miami. He is worth more than that to us. He is the #2 WR on this team if Jennings or Nelson get hurt.
