Packers coach Mike McCarthy and General Manager Ted Thompson both declined to say this weekend whether Driver will be back with the team after his Dancing with the Stars stint is over.



He'll have to beat out some good younger players who also have their entire careers ahead of them. Depending upon cap considerations, I wouldn't cut DD loose just yet.

Think he's tradeable?

We have a couple of practice squad receivers and now a couple of UFA receivers with really nice size...it could be a tough call. But I think DD reworks his contract and plays one more year. It's going to be important for him to stay healthy or it could be cut short.

It was time to cut Driver last year or trade him the year before. Can we please move on and take the cap savings to sign our marquee players?

Jennings, Jones, Gurley

Nelson, Cobb, Rookie

Still the best group in the NFL.

Geez people. You all are haters! Lets Box!

Let the decision be made in the preseason. Don't you think cutting him loose now might be jumping the gun? Let's see who's better - Driver, or Gurley. Let's not forget that in the Playoffs last year, who was our best WR?

That's right folks.

Haters.
thanks Post received 3 applause.

You go ZS!



But since that nimrod from North Dakota wants to let Driver go.............perhaps.........


Although Donald can't have his number since it's retired (Cris Carter)....... Driver would look damn fine in purple!

Whatcha think DT? :-"

I still don't understand the desire to cut Driver. He's a solid receiver with fairly dependable hands. He's certainly more reliable than Finley.

anyone surprised that in his spare time vikesrule toys with the idea of iconic Packers players in Vikings uniforms? You'd think vikesrule would have had enough with his idol Brett Favre wearing the crapple, err purple.

They're nothing more than the kid who hates the local team for the sake of being 'different'. Mind no attention to them.

Oh, he'll DEFINITELY end up in Minny. But I'd say keep him around for right now, just being that Gurley and Borel could get in a car accident, suddenly fall ill, a meteorite could come crashing down on their heads, we just dont know. No real NEED to cut DD at this precise moment.

But I do think that he has to be so good that ONE year of DD (and there's no guarantee that he'll remain healthy) would be preferable to say FIVE years of some younger player. That's aside from the cap considerations.

Does anyone else think that Cobb might become a more electric "go to" guy than Jennings? I'm not saying he is right now, I'm just saying there's potential there.
