GREEN BAY - Donald Driver is ready to call it a career.
The Packers say the wide receiver is retiring.
A ceremony is set for next Wednesday at the Lambeau Field Atrium. Tickets will be available on a first-come, first served basis starting Friday, according to packers.com.
Driver has played all 14 of his seasons in Green Bay. He was drafted 213th overall in 1999.
He turns 38 on Saturday.
Driver was set to be a free agent this off-season, and there had been speculation about him playing with another team, possibly even the Minnesota Vikings.
Earlier this month, Driver told FOX 11 News how he'd like to be remembered.
He said, "I've always said I want to be here, and be mentioned in the same breath as those true legends. I've always said that's what I want my legacy to be about, to be able to come back and walk through that tunnel, where next year 80 thousand fans will be screaming your name. That's something special."
Driver finishes as the Packers all-time leader in yards receiving (10,137 yards) and catches (743), and is third behind Don Hutson and Sterling Sharpe with 61 touchdown receptions. He had seven 1,000-yard seasons, also a Packers record for a receiver.
