GREEN BAY, Wis., Feb. 6 (UPI) -- Donald Driver, the Green Bay Packers' all-time leader in receptions and yards, officially retired from the NFL Wednesday.

The 48-year-old, four-time Pro Bowl player who helped Green Bay win Super Bowl XLV, finishes his career with 743 receptions, 10,137 yards and 61 touchdown receptions, good for third place in franchise history.

"Even though I feel that I can still play the game, God has made the answer clear to me, the time is now," Driver said at Lambeau Field. "I have to retire a Green Bay Packer. I've always said I never wanted to wear another uniform, but always the green and gold."

Driver was a seventh round draft pick out of Alcorn State.
