The Green Bay Packers made it evident they would not likely release Donald Driver this season as they guaranteed him $1.2 million.

Driver renegotiated his contract, which was dated May 30 and worth $2.3 million. The base salary is $1.1 million, while the roster bonus is $1.2 million. There are no additional bonuses or seasons added.

The renegotiations cut Driver’s pay more than in half for this season, the final year of his contract. Driver was scheduled to make $5 million in the final year signed back in August 2010.

Donald Driver Wins Dancing with the Stars

Donald Driver is not new to shiny trophies. He added another one to his collection recently, taking home the coveted mirror ball trophy Tuesday night on “Dancing with the Stars.”

Runner-up Katherine Jenkins and third-place finisher William Levy also performed on Tuesday.

Some viewers were surprised by the win, but here at Packers Badgers, we know a winner when we see one (so do the Packers!). Driver was dubbed by the judges as a dancer with “great physique, great posture, great presence”.

Congratulations to Donald Driver!
