Lots of calls across Packers Planet rang out for Donald Driver to take his old job back at wide receiver, but Driver's a little busy with his new book, with a series of signings across Wisconsin and the U.S.

"I am getting ready to go to New York and release my book on Tuesday," admitted Driver on 620WTMJ's "Wisconsin's Afternoon News."



Bet he wasn't asked.

Does that make him a bad guy?

All I read for DD's last 2 years or so is "why is he still playing".

Now some are going to get angry because he has obviously moved on to life after football?

Don't understand the reason for the article at all.

I don't think he is a bad guy and I didn't see the article implying he was. They said he has moved on and has other things to do these days.

I was commenting more on the writer of the article then anyone else.
Seems these guys just try to start controversy.

I didn't get that vibe at all from the article. I'm sure a lot of fans have been asking if Driver is an option to come back so the dude went straight to the source and got an answer. There was no negative context at all. No idea where you are coming from with this.

Medias job is to get viewers/hits/reads, nothing else. Media doesn't have to be true, false, sane, or crazy, it just has to generate viewership. Ultimately, it's all about dat ca$h. It's pretty sad, but it's reality and a lot of people are pretty successful by using that as their mantra.

DD is doing other things now, can't blame the guy for not coming back due to a couple of injuries. Let him enjoy his retirement, he has more than earned it.
