Donald Driver statue revealed in Green Bay

Posted:

GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- Former Packers wide receiver Donald Driver was honored this weekend at a special event in Green Bay.

The project to re-paint the "Receiver" statue with a No. 80 jersey in honor of retired Packers player Donald Driver has been months in the making.

On Saturday, the finished product was revealed to a crowd of Packers fans at Titletown Brewing Company. The statue was unveiled along with the newly re-named street: Donald Driver Way.

Driver says he and his family, who joined him at the dedication, are grateful for all the support from fans over the years.

A special guest also made an appearance at the event: former Packers General Manager Ron Wolf.

"To see the man that made all this possible I had to honor him. And, you know, he called me the day he knew I was going to retire and told me that I am Mr. Green Bay.  And, for a guy to say that about you that sets you aside from everything else," Driver says.

The Children's Museum of Green Bay also unveiled their dedication to Driver-- a replica of the Donald Driver Way street sign inside the museum.
