Donald Driver’s expected to make the Packers final roster


According to Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, it looks like there is no doubt that wide receiver Donald Driver will make the Green Bay Packers’ 53-man roster this season.

“Many of Donald Driver’s teammates would be positively stunned if the venerable wide receiver didn’t make the team.

“Unless Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy see it differently from their players, Driver will not be getting tapped on the shoulder by the dreaded Turk come Friday when the Green Bay Packers trim down to the 53-man roster limit,” wrote McGinn.

“Seriously, I can’t even believe that that’s a question,” wide receiver Randall Cobb said. “I think for sure he’s here. He definitely showed himself this preseason.”

“Nothing that has happened in training camp or three exhibition games would suggest Driver could be in trouble. After Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson, Driver continues to get more snaps than James Jones and Cobb just as he did a year ago,” McGinn wrote.

Even though Driver didn’t rack up the yardage he’s typically put up each year, he still scored six touchdowns and still appears to be enough of the threat for the Packers to keep him around for at least one more season.
