Dancing Driver faces uncertain future in Green Bay
Saturday, April 28, 2012
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson and coach Mike McCarthy both enjoy watching veteran wide receiver Donald Driver compete on "Dancing With the Stars."
There is no guarantee he'll be on the roster by the time training camp rolls around.
Driver is the leading receiver in franchise history with 735 catches for 10,060 yards. But he turned 37 in February, and said after the Packers' playoff loss to the New York Giants that he wasn't sure if the team would bring him back for the final year of his contract.
Asked about Driver's future Saturday, Thompson stopped short of guaranteeing that Driver's spot was secure, saying he "would never speculate on something like that."
