We have to wonder if the Green Bay Packers are like in major league baseball, a farm system for the Minnesota Vikings? There was Ryan Longwell, Darren Sharper, Brett Favre and now, maybe Donald Driver playing for the Vikings. We wonder, can’t Minnesota find their own players?

Driver has not said he would play with the Vikings but we do know he can play somewhere but not with the Pack. The story out of Green Bay.

GREEN BAY – The Green Bay Packers may not be asking their all-time leading receiver Donald Driver back next year, but that doesn’t necessarily mean other teams aren’t interested in seeing what is left in the tank. FOX 11 has learned that the Minnesota Vikings would have an interest in the 37-year-old free agent wide receiver if he does not decide to retire.

The question is whether or not Driver wants to play for another team, much less a hated division rival after 14 years with the Packers. The Packers have given no indication they have a desire to sign Driver, but he has been reluctant to consider going to another team for fear of tarnishing his Packers legacy. However, he has not ruled it out completely.

Driver knows he can still play and money is money. Since the Packers don’t want him, where he plays is good for him.

Donald, thanks for the memories.
