"I'm going to officially put the cleats on the shelf," Driver told the hosts.
"I'm going to walk away from the game."
The Packers also issued a news release on Thursday, saying Driver's retirement
will take place in a public event at Lambeau Field.

retire than to celebrate with them and the Packers organization."
