Donald Driver won’t be back in 2013, as the Packers announced that their all-time leading wide receiver will retire with an official retirement ceremony slated for next Wednesday, Feb. 6, in the Lambeau Field Atrium.

“I would never have expected it, being a seventh-round pick, and a lot of people telling you that you weren’t going to make the team,” Driver said a few short years ago, when he rattled off the long-since-forgotten players he was competing with as a young, wide-eyed rookie. “To get that opportunity to pass all the greats that have played before me, it’s an honor just to be mentioned in the same breath as those guys.”
