Some may wonder why Donald Driver got another contract extension so soon after his last one (which was, um, last off season). I don't. If Thompson wants to make extending Driver's contract an annual thing, I'd be more than happy. He is everything you want and more, not just at the receiver position, but as an overall player and teammate.
Now, I hear the howls of protest: "Why pay Driver twice but not Walker once?"
Good question. Maybe because Diver has done it year after year. Not just one year. Maybe because he made very little noise about it in the press, rather than badmouthing the Packers and Thompson every chance he got. And maybe he never compared the act of playing football with being deployed to Iraq.
So here's to "Double D". May he get a raise every August.
