Packers players to watch Driver on DWTS Monday night - WKOW 27: Madison, WI Breaking News, Weather and Sports

UPDATE: Packers' Jones rooting for Driver on DWTS

Posted:

DE PERE (WKOW) -- Packers players are of course hoping Donald Driver brings home the mirror ball trophy to Green Bay and wins "Dancing with the Stars."

As Driver takes the stage one last time, here in Wisconsin, one of his biggest fans and teammate James Jones is cheering him on.

When the wide receiver found out Driver would perform on the show, Jones knew Driver's personality would take him far in the competition.

"I think it's personality, every dance that he shows and goes through he's always on point with the passion and with the smiling and all that good stuff, so I think that's what got him here so far," says Jones.

Jones and his family have watched every dance since the beginning, and they max out their allotted votes each week. Jones says the whole team is behind Driver, even though he believes the judges can be hard on him.

"For Donald to go on here and especially do as good as he's been doing and performing the way he's been performing I think it's good for Green Bay," says Jones.
