GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Pro Bowl wide receiver Donald Driver has received a contract extension and a raise from the Green Bay Packers.

Driver's agent Jordan Woy today praised Packers vice president of player finance and general counsel Andrew Brandt and Packers general manager Ted Thompson for recognizing Driver's value to the team.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Driver was given a one-year extension through the 2010 season, adding almost $11 million to his existing deal.

Most of that money comes in the final year of the new deal, as Driver would make about seven million in 2010.

Driver will be 35 years old going into the 2010 season.

The Packers also redid Driver's deal before last season, giving him a two-year extension that resulted in a new four-year deal worth $17 million.

He went on to earn his second Pro Bowl appearance after leading the team with 92 receptions and 1295 yards receiving - both career highs.
