Donald Driver won't be coming to Vikings, says he's done
January 31, 2013 — 7:56am
There's been talk about Packers veteran wide receiver Donald Driver being a target for the Vikings in the off-season. But you can cross him off the wish list after Driver announced his retirement Thursday morning on ESPN's Mike and Mike in the Morning Show.
"There are other things out there," said Driver, who saw his playing time reduced significantly this season. He caught only eight passes for 77 yards this season, his 14th in the NFL.
Driver didn't disclose many details, saying he's planning a public event in Green Bay for next week to talk more about his decision.
One thing he did say: He won't be doing a Brett Favre.
"I'm not coming back," Driver said. "The thing is, you know, you just don't want to jump back and forth."
A Green Bay TV report over the weekend mentioned the Vikings' interest in Driver.
