Should Donald Driver be an Olympian, Ironman or both?

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Feb 18, 2014

Former Green Bay Packers receiver and Dancing with the Stars champ Donald Driver seems to have the itch to do something big again in the world of sports, and perhaps he has some Olympian options.

Driver said earlier Tuesday that he was considering competing in the original Ironman Triathlon in Hawaii.

This past week, he and former training camp teammate Johnny Quinn, now an Olympic bobsledder, decided to train together after the Olympic Games.  Both live in the Dallas area.

We posted this question on Twitter.

After retweets by both the all-time leading Green Bay Packers pass-catcher and the man who can punch through an Olympic Village door, we got these responses.
