WR Driver (Again) Wants to Rework His Contract


The Packers number two pass catcher wants a new deal.  Receiver Donald Driver is not happy with his current contract and wants a reworked deal, according to the Wisconsin State Journal of Madison.  He was not at the teams voluntary practice on Thursday.

The current contract for the three-time Pro Bowler will pay him $3.9 million this season and $4 million in 2010, and he’s looking for more.  “I don’t know what he’s doing,” an NFL source told the State Journal. “It makes no sense.”

Reworked deals for Driver is nothing new, as he’s reworked deals before the 2006 and 2007 seasons.  Contacted by the newspaper via e-mail, Driver’s agent, Jordan Woy, said Driver “is training in Texas and the Packers know this. It is not a mandatory camp.”

Driver is 34, and he might see the writing on the wall that the current deal he’s under could be his last as a top notch NFL player.  He’ll become more expendable as Greg Jennings continues as the Packers’ No. 1 option in the passing game.
