'DWTS' champ expected at camp soon

On Tuesday night, Green Bay Packers receiver Donald Driver won "Dancing with the Stars," celebrating his victory with a roll across the dance floor.

"Amazing!" Driver exclaimed before hoisting the mirror ball trophy with professional partner Peta Murgatroyd in a confetti shower. Driver was joined on the stage by his wife and children.

Now it's back to football.

After Tuesday's midday practice, coach Mike McCarthy said he expected Driver to report for offseason workouts next week.

"I'm looking for Donald to win tonight," McCarthy said before the results were announced. "I thought he was great last night. I know he's excited about it. I had a chance to communicate with him. But also, he's excited to get back to Green Bay. I think he's in good shape, hopefully. We'll see what happens."

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who was with McCarthy, Clay Matthews, Rob Davis and Edgar Bennett in the audience for last week's episode, is also excited about getting his teammate back.

"It was great to go see him last week," Rodgers said Tuesday afternoon. "We had a lot of fun. He's done an incredible job with the show, and he's been himself. His personality comes out on that show, and he did a great job [Monday] night. I've been retweeting his Tweets as much as I can and voted last night a bunch of times, so hopefully he can bring that mirror ball back."

Driver scored 59 of a possible 60 points in Monday night's final, which former Packers receiver Antonio Freeman attended, then a perfect 30 with his dance on Tuesday. He beat out opera singer Katherine Jenkins. Actor William Levy came in third place.
