Packers extend contract of WR Driver

The Green Bay Packers are extending the contract of wide

receiver Donald Driver, the team’s longest-tenured current

player.

The Packers made the announcement Friday after the team’s

afternoon practice. Driver said the extension is for two years,

through the 2012 season. Financial terms weren’t immediately

available.

”I can’t complain,” Driver said. ”Now, I’m a Green Bay Packer

for life.”

Driver, 35, who has played his entire NFL career with the

Packers since they selected him in the seventh round in the 1999

draft, had been signed through this season.
