The Green Bay Packers have extended Ted Thompson! Even more years of awesomeness and NFC North domination to come!

Thompson had two years left on his contract prior to this extension.

Packers said:
GREEN BAY—Ted Thompson, the architect of the Packers’ current five-year playoff run, will remain the team’s executive vice president and general manager for the long-term future.

Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy, who recently said signing Thompson to a new contract was a priority, announced on Wednesday that Thompson has signed a new, multi-year contract with the team.

“I’m pleased that we were able to enter into this contract extension with Ted,” Murphy said. “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.”

Thompson is beginning his 10th season as the team’s football operations boss. Under his and Head Coach Mike McCarthy’s leadership, the Packers won a Super Bowl in the 2010 season and are currently on a three-year run as NFC North Division champions.


lol Ted has a great sense of humor.
thanks Post received 2 applause.

This is great news! I'm happy to hear that he is feeling great, and is going to continue in Green Bay.
Also, I am curious how long this extension is for. Multi-year extension when he had 2 years remaining must mean he's anticipating sticking around for a good while. Sounds good to me; next comes the McCarthy extension.

From Ted's press conference this afternoon:

"How nuts are you to walk away from this? I want to be here." "I'm a scout. That's what I do, and that's what I enjoy."

Great Move by The Packer organization!!!!!

Ted's not flashy, doesn't need the limelight, he just goes about the business of delivering Mike and Co. the best talent he and his scouts can find.

Stability at the top is sometimes overlooked.

That pounding sound you hear...that's uffda banging his head against the wall. Sorry uffda but you did expect this didn't you.

As far as McCarthy goes, I'm not so sure he gets his before the season is over. He is not in his last year so there is no pressure and it wouldn't surprise me if Ted Thompson waits to see how this season goes. Then again, it wouldn't surprise me if they announced McCarty's extension tomorrow

I held out some remote hope that some of the talk that he was burned out and potentially ready to step aside was true, but knew this was the likely outcome.

Of course, I'm disappointed. While others are celebrating the fact we might now win more division titles, I cringe knowing we'll likely never sniff another SB under Aaron. A shame. Just a shame. 3 straight years of playoff failure, two ending in embarrassing fashion. The D is terrible and has been for several years while Ted Thompson pumps high pick after high pick into it. Not sure what he did to earn an extension...the SB honeymoon is long since over but I may be downplaying the idea that many fans were still reveling in the Bart Starr days during the entire 70's and 80's so the one in '10 will likely keep fans placated for a few more decades. Truly bummed.

Man that's a depressing outlook. But yeah... it freaking hard to win the superbowl. But damn I was feeling a lot better after last season ending loss than my Bronco fan friend was after his loss I tell you.
