Donald Driver has officially announced retirement.
Driver has announced that his against-all-odds career has come to an end, with an official retirement ceremony slated for next Wednesday, Feb. 6, in the Lambeau Field Atrium.

Most receiving yards (10,137)
Most 1,000-yard seasons (seven, a record six of them consecutive from 2004-09)
