Green Bay - For the longest time, Donald Driver didn't even want to talk about it. He couldn't even consider it. Absolutely consumed with winning a Super Bowl, he would shake his head at anyone broaching the topic of his post-football life.
But lately he's been thinking about it a lot.
In his 13th season, 36 years old, with that cherished ring, he's watching his numbers recede as these younger receivers fly on the field. His role has changed. And with the tiny crinkles around the eyes and the sore joints every morning, Driver can't help but sense an aging transition and wonder where it will take him next.
"I come to work happy. But sometimes I think, why am I still doing this?" Driver said. "I've got eight, nine years on all of these receivers. I won a Super Bowl. I have Pro Bowls. What am I trying to prove? Nothing. I don't have anything to prove.
