Donald Driver joins 'Dancing With the Stars'

We’re yet to know if Donald Driver will have a role with the Green Bay Packers this coming season.

We do know the wide receiver will have a role on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” it was announced this morning.

Driver becomes the latest NFL star to take his act to the dance floor. He was selected after New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz passed on a chance, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.

Hines Ward and Emmitt Smith are NFL stars who have won on DWTS. Another sports figure will be on the show this season, former tennis legend Martina Navratilova.

Driver’s future with the Packers remains up in the air. He will have to restructure his contract if he wants to remain but the team might not want him back after he caught just 37 passes this past season. Driver is the club’s all-time leading receiver.

DWTS debuts March 19 this season.
