Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver has been to three pro bowls
and won his first Super Bowl last season. He also holds records for receptions and consecutive games with a catch. Now Driver has his sights set on the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
At his celebrity softball challenge on Sunday, Driver was asked what drives him long-term.
Driver said he wants to put team receiving records out of reach.
After 12 NFL seasons, the milestones are starting to stack up for Driver. He’s talked about the goal of having his number retired and seeing his name in the Stadium’s Ring of Honor, as well as seeing his number retired. The latter is something that’s been bestowed on five players with Brett Favre soon to become the sixth.
On Sunday, Driver added the Pro Football Hall of Fame discussion. He said the idea popped in his head after a recent discussion with former NFL receiving great Tim Brown.
Driver will likely have to play at least a couple more seasons and remain productive to have any chance of being in Hall of Fame discussion. He’ll be a shoe-in for the Packers Hall of Fame when he becomes eligible.
