Are the Vikings about to plunder the Packers for another
castoff veteran skill position player? A TV station in Green Bay says they just might:
The Green Bay Packers may not be asking their all-time leading receiver Donald Driver back next year, but that doesn’t necessarily mean other teams aren’t interested in seeing what is left in the tank. FOX 11 has learned that the Minnesota Vikings would have an interest in the 37-year-old free agent wide receiver if he does not decide to retire.
The question is whether or not Driver wants to play for another team, much less a hated division rival after 14 years with the Packers. The Packers have given no indication they have a desire to sign Driver, but he has been reluctant to consider going to another team for fear of tarnishing his Packers legacy. However, he has not ruled it out completely.
“I think I could go to any team and be either their number one or number two guy and be solid for another three years, “ Driver told FOX 11 two weeks ago.
Driver will be 38 soon and his reception total has gone down every year since 2006 -- all the way down to just 8 grabs this past season while he battled injuries. Any interest, Vikings fans? At the very least, it would give Stu another guy to Hunt Down in a few years.
