From Brian McIntyre:
The Green Bay Packers have signed veteran wide receiver Donald Driver to a two-year contract extension, Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
Driver, who has spent his entire 11-year career with the Packers, was entering the final season of a four-year, $22.7 million contract he signed in 2007. Driver will now be under contract to the Packers through the 2012 season, after which Driver will turn 38 years old.
Driver’s extension will give him an opportunity to retire as a Packer.
Financial terms of his contract extension are unknown, but Driver was scheduled to earn $7 million in total compensation this season.
In 177 career games, Driver has caught a Packers-record 647 passes for 9,050 yards and 49 touchdowns. Driver’s receiving yardage ranks second behind James Lofton on the Packers’ all-time list, a mark he’ll eclipse with 607 yards this season.
