Report: Vikings interested in signing WR Donald Driver
Could Donald Driver’s exit from the Packers send him to Green Bay’s biggest rival?
The Vikings are interested in signing the unrestricted free agent, according to a report from Fox 11 in Green Bay. Driver’s future in Green Bay appears over after the team’s all-time leading receiver caught eight passes and was inactive for one of the team’s two playoff games.
The soon-to-be 38-year-old could shop for a new team or lean toward retirement, as reported by USA Today last week.
Driver, who has hosted Fox 11′s “Inside the Huddle” show for years, said two weeks ago:
“I think I could go to any team and be either their number one or number two guy and be solid for another three years, “ Driver said. “The question is do I want to see myself in another uniform? Will my family want to see that? If nobody wants to see it at the end of the day, it will still be a tough decision because I’ve always said I only want to wear that green and gold and nothing else.”
The Vikings are expected to take a long look at free agent receivers in March in hopes of lengthening their passing attack. Drivers’ Green Bay teammate, Greg Jennings, could be high on the Vikings’ wish list.
