Packers sign GM Ted Thompson to a new contract
Green Bay said a new contract for Ted Thompson was a priority. Turns out that was true.
Packers general manager Ted Thompson, who has helped Green Bay to five consecutive playoff appearances and a Super Bowl XLV victory, has signed a new multi-year contract with the team, the Packers announced Wednesday.
“I’m pleased that we were able to enter into this contract extension with Ted,” Packers CEO Mark Murphy said in a statement. “His outstanding work has been the key factor in the success that we’ve enjoyed in recent years. I have tremendous respect for Ted, and am confident that we will continue to contend for championships under his leadership."
As for why Thompson, who enters his 10th year as the team's GM, wanted to stick around for so long.
Thompson: It's easy to say I'm going to ride off into the sunset, but I have people that I'm responsible for here. People I've hired.— Green Bay Packers (@packers) July 30, 2014
