Blog Photo - Donald Driver wins Dancing with the StarsDonald Driver became the 3rd football player to win a season of the hit TV show Dancing with the Stars.

Driver won the finale last night over singer Katherine Jenkins and actor William Levy, and even received a 10 from notoriously tough judge Len Goodman.

Driver joins Emmitt Smith and Hines Ward as NFL stars who became DWTS winners. Jerry Rice, Warren Sapp, and Jason Taylor all finished 2nd in their seasons. Other football players who participated include Chad Ochocinco, Lawrence Taylor, Michael Irvin, Kurt Warner.

Now, Driver has to once again focus on football, where he will attempt to extend his already 13-year career. Despite having only 37 catches for 445 yards last year, he was still a solid contributor with 6 TD catches.

He told Jimmy Traina of Hot Clicks that he's ready to get back on the field as a Packer, so we'll see how he manages to contribute again this year. If he's half as good on the field as he was on the dance floor, he'll be fine.
