Driver played his entire 14-year playing career with the Green Bay Packers and leaves as the team leader in receptions, receiving yards and 1,000 yard seasons.

All four Green Bay television stations will air the conference live.  It can also be found on the Green Bay Packers radio network, as well as via stream at Packers.com.

He’ll go down as one of the all-time favorite players to ever where a Packers uniform and has set himself up well for the future.  He’ll continue to get several endorsement opportunities and could be used by the organization in special event opportunities.
