Green Bay Packers Wide Receiver Donald Driver Wins Dancing With The Stars

Donald Driver of the Green Bay Packers became the champion of the 14th season of Dancing With The Stars Tuesday night.  Driver defeated William Levy and Katherine Jenkins in the finals.

In an offseason filled with uncertainty for the longtime Packers player, this is a bright spot.  Donald Driver was consistently one of the best contestants on the show and he certainly deserved the championship.  It shows that athletes have a lot more grace and skill than you would think.

Now that DWTS is over, Driver can now focus on his future.  If he wants to remain a Packer, I imagine that Donald Driver is going to have to restructure his contract.  The team just does not want to pay a lot of money to guy who is basically the fifth wide receiver.  Driver has had a great career in Green Bay, but there are young guys who are chomping at the bit for more playing time.

I would not be shocked if Donald Driver ends up getting cut by the Packers.  They would save some cash and they would open up playing time for their young wideouts.  Driver is just not that effective anymore.  It is nothing personal against DD, but it is a business.  He is expendable.

As a Packers fan, I love what Donald Driver did in his career with the Packers.  However, it is time for both to move on.  He got his ring and now he has his Dancing With The Stars championship.  That is a pretty solid career if you ask me.
