Donald Driver to Play Until 40?
He’s 34 years old, going on 35 in a couple of weeks, and he’s due $4 million next season (plus $3 million as a roster bonus).
Not the numbers you want to hear when you’re thinking of a rising team’s number two receiver.
Donald Driver has recently said that he’d like to keep playing in the NFL until he’s at least 40. While that’s a fine goal, it’s growing less and less likely that he will be able to retire as a Packer, if he does in fact continue aiming for this goal.
And what a lofty goal it is.
Only 51 players in NFL history have played to (or past) 40 years of age, and only one has been a wide receiver: Jerry Rice.
That’s some interesting company Driver is fancying himself in.
