Donald Driver, Mark Lee inducted into Packers Hall of Fame
One of the greatest receivers in Green Bay Packers history is back at Lambeau Field.
Donald Driver was inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame on Saturday, 18 years after being drafted in the seventh round.
He was inducted alongside former Packers cornerback Mark Lee.
“I’m just happy to back,” Driver said.
Green Bay’s all-time leading receiver, Driver racked up 10,137 receiving yards, 743 receptions and 61 touchdowns in 14 seasons with the Packers.
Driver was a three-time Pro Bowl selection, and helped the Packers to a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV.
“To be the all-time Packers leading receiver in franchise history, that tells you you’re among some of the greatest icons and legends that have played in green and gold,” Driver told Packers.com. “To surpass those individuals is something I know I’m going to cherish for a long time.”
Driver was the 213th overall pick in 1999 after attending Alcorn State in Mississippi, where he lettered in track and field while shining on the football field.
Lee spent 11 seasons with the Packers from 1980-90, hauling in 31 interceptions.
