Default Donald Driver to retire

Green Bay Packers receiver Donald Driver announced on ESPN Radio's "Mike and Mike in the Morning" Thursday that he is retiring after 14 seasons.

"I'm going to open my retirement up to the fans ... give them everything they deserve," Driver told ESPN Radio.

Default Re: Donald Driver to retire

I remember reading a story about him in Sports Illustrated over a decade ago about how he used to boost cars when he was young and that an old woman lied to protect him and kept him on the porch in order to keep him out of trouble and that he turned his life around that day. He also has scars all over his hands from punching out the windows.

Nice to see some can turn it around when given a second chance in life.
