Packers Reportedly Offer Driver Restructured Deal

Donald Driver

The Green Bay Packers have offered receiver Donald Driver a restructured contract, according to Lance Allen.

Any new deal would simply be an attempt for the Packers to save money and for Driver to stay in Green Bay. Driver is 37 and coming off one of his least-productive seasons as a pro, but has expressed his intention to play in 2012. He’s also said he’s open to taking a pay cut to stay with the Packers.

It looks like that’s what Driver and his agent will be mulling over today.

Driver has a salary cap number of $5 million in 2012. More than $2.5 million of that is in the form of Driver’s base salary. That’s a lot of money to pay a veteran falling down the depth chart.

    Perhaps the Packers were just waiting to see how DWTS shook out.

    We don’t tolerate any losers in that locker room. Hahahaha….

    Cutting him would be really hard to stomach, even for Ted. He will likely have to take a huge pay cut, but every team needs an emotional leader like Driver.

    Whatever it takes to bring him back. If he’s willing to work on a restructured deal (AKA Paycut), then work with him. I agree with tequila!

    It’s better to have 5+ WR’S than 5 TE’S. Go with Jennings, Jordy, Jones, Cobb & DD,,,let Gurley, Borel & Shaky fight for roster spots in training camp. Having a deep WR core ( injuries-jennings end of last year) is key for a team that threw the ball 66% of the time last year.

    I don’t think Driver should take a pay cut he is a good player and everyone knows it. It’s cuz Roger don’t give him the ball no more he gives it to ppl that don’t know how to catch the ball.
