Like other Titletown heroes before him, Donald Driver will have a street named after him in Green Bay.
Mayor Jim Schmitt told hundreds of fans at Driver’s retirement ceremony Wednesday that a street located near the Fox River by the Titletown Brewing Company will be named “Donald Driver Way.” In addition, Schmitt gave the wide receiver a key to the city.
The brewery and restaurant are located on the west edge of the city’s downtown. Also, Schmitt said the statue of a Packers’ receiver in front of the restaurant will be refurbished with Driver’s name and Number 80 jersey.
So Driver left Green Bay in an unprecedented blaze of glory. The 38-year-old told the crowd that he walks away from the game knowing that he gave all he could, so, “I owe it to the fans and this fine organization not to tarnish the legacy that they’ve established in me and my family.”
