Driver Gets Extension

According to his agent, the Packers added money so Driver could get paid like the Pro Bowl receiver he is.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports a new one-year extension through the 2010 season, adding almost 11 million dollars to his existing deal. But most of that comes in the final year of the new deal, which is likely to be restructured again as Driver would be 35 years old going into the 2010 season, and the Packers might not be willing to pay that much money to a player in his mid-30s.

The Packers also redid Driver's deal before last season, giving him a two-year extension that resulted in a new four-year deal worth 17 million dollars. He went on to earn his second Pro Bowl appearance after leading the team with 92 receptions and 1,295 yards receiving -- both career highs.
