GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The Brown County Board plans to honor Green Bay Packers’ receiver Donald Driver this week for his contributions to the community.

The 37-year-old Driver is the team’s all-time leading receiver. But he’s not expected to return to the Packers after 14 seasons, and county supervisor Bernie Erickson says he wants to honor Driver before he leaves town.

The board plans to recognize him for creating a foundation that deals with homelessness and education. Driver has also hosted an annual charity softball game with his Packer teammates.

Erickson says Driver has given both his talents and his money to the community – and now is a great chance to honor him.

County officials say the board meeting is on Driver’s schedule, but it’s subject to change.

Green Bay has been Driver’s only NFL team since he was drafted in 1999. He says still he wants to play until he’s 40 – but he may also retire as a pure Packer. He hasn’t made that decision yet.
