Green Bay Packers legend Donald Driver retired in February, bringing to an end a 14-year career that saw him catch 743 passes for over 10,000 yards and 61 touchdowns.

The 38-year-old wide receiver only caught eight passes in 13 games last year and the Packers showed no interest in bringing him back. So, Driver announced his retirement despite saying he wanted to play until he was 40.

Now, with injuries to James Jones and Randall Cobb, the Packers are thin at wide receiver. Jarrett Boykin and Jordy Nelson are the only traditional wideouts who are healthy and Myles White is the only receiver on the practice squad.

Should the Packers reach out to a man who is good in the locker room and knows the offense to fill the void?

Here's the latest on the knee injuries to Jones and Cobb:
