Packers Reward GM Ted Thompson with Contract Extension

Packers Reward GM Ted Thompson with Contract Extension

David Dermer/Diamond Images/Getty Images(GREEN BAY, Wisc.) — One of the best general managers in the NFL is sticking around a little longer as the Green Bay Packers are rewarding Ted Thompson with a contract extension.
Thompson’s new deal is being called “a multi-year contract extension” and he will remain in charge of the football operations. His original deal was set to expire after the 2016 season.
“The more you think about it, the more you think how nuts are you that you’d walk away from something like this,” Thompson said. “It’s important to me. It’s not my family, but I’ve got a lot of really good friends here and co-workers that I enjoy coming to work with every day.”
Thompson is entering his 10th season as the Packers general manager, and the team has gone 86-57-1 in the regular season and 6-5 in the postseason. They also won the Super Bowl XLV.
Thompson’s first draft pick came in 2004 when he selected quarterback Aaron Rodgers 24th overall.
