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.

Detroit has no rivals. They are so crappy it just does not matter.

I thought Rick (Their GM) was a draft type of guy ... Plus - don't the vikes have to lock up Jared Allen or something?

I hope Donald knows that this wouldn't be like the Favre thing. No one would think he's a traitor. His body has slowed down a lot, so I think a deal with the Packers for personal appearences would be great for him, but if that has to wait a while it's ok. Packer for life #80

I am Doris used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes...i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Priests Meruja); he does not advertise on the internet, has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him.contact him as nativedoctor101@live.com He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something more!

 I agree Larry, this writer must be some zit squeezing, mama basement living, teeny bopper...really the Vikings are the Packers biggest rival? I would say the Lions are higher on that scale than Minnesota.

Where do they get these guys?

 The Lions? forget mama's basement, you must be livin under a rock Packers - Vikings over the years has alwys been the predominant rivlary in the black and blue division.  Occasionally the Bears but the Lions .  Just say no when somebody offers you the drugs.
