Driver willing to take pay cut to return

Donald Driver is willing to take a pay cut to stay with the team, the Packers receiver told reporters at the 38th annual Three Harbors Council Boy Scouts Leadership Breakfast in Milwaukee. The organization knows what Ive done on and off the field, and they want to keep me around as long as possible, Driver told WISN TV. If that means sitting down and taking pay cuts to stay around, then you take pay cuts to stay around. Ive always said its not about the money for me anymore. What Im pushing for is for my legacy to stay around in the state of Wisconsin and around the world forever. So the moneys not a big issue. Driver, who just turned 37, finished his 13th season in Green and Gold with 37 receptions, 445 yards and six touchdowns. The catches and yardage were his lowest since the 2001 season. Hes scheduled to earn a $2.6 million salary in 2012 and a $2.2 million roster bonus in March. Its hard to believe the team would bring Driver back with him counting $5 million against the salary cap. Driver sounded resigned to the fact that his career in Green Bay was done, the week after the Packers playoff loss to the Giants. He said he wanted to continue to play football, and if that wasnt with the Packers he would do so elsewhere.
