Packers officially unveil "Donald Driver Way"

Published On: Jun 16 2013 02:25:03 AM CDT

GREEN BAY, Wis. -

Another street in Green Bay is now renamed after a Packers player or coach.

City officials unveiled the sign Saturday changing Pearl Street to Donald Driver Way for the recently retired wide receiver who spent 14 seasons with the Packers.

Also unveiled Saturday was a 28-year-old statue in front of Titletown Brewery that has been painted to look like Driver by the so-called Packers "Fence Painter" Chris Handler.

Driver retired this winter after catching 743 passes for 10,137 yards after making the team as a seventh-round draft pick out of Alcorn State in 1999.

Driver choked back tears as he thanked the community and team for its support Saturday. He also thanked former Packers President Ron Wolf, who was in attendance. Wolf signed Driver to the team.
