Packers GM Ted Thompson.
A source provided ALLGBP.com the below speech that was rejected by Ted Thompson for Wednesday’s Packers shareholder meeting. Unfortunately, Thompson decided to not use this speech, and just wasted everyone’s time like he’s done at every other shareholder meeting. Hopefully Ted changes his mind and uses a speech like this next year.
“Before I get started, I first want to thank everyone who is here today. Many of you forked over $250 to buy Packers’ stock a few years ago, and for that, the entire organization is truly grateful.
All of us in Packers’ upper management love you people, even though we think you’re insane and make jokes about you behind closed doors. I mean seriously, you guys fork over $250 so you can hang a certificate on your wall and come here every year to listen to me say absolutely nothing about your favorite football team. The last couple of years, I’ve literally stood at this very podium and read off the names on the roster. If you paid me...

Training Camp begins with a lot of optimism and apprehension. Optimism in the fact that the season has begun once again and the Packers are looking to make another run at a Super Bowl Championship. The apprehension comes from the bad news that happens at seemingly every team’s training camp. A player has either come in out of shape and failed his physical, or they have suffered...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The popularity of the NFL is unquestioned across the United States. But for high-ranking executives like Green Bay Packers president and CEO Mark Murphy, there is significant concern about how much longer that can last if player safety isn't continually addressed.

As of Wednesday morning, 19 of the 32 first-round draft picks from April have signed contracts. Of the 13 unsigned rookies, a whopping 6 fall between picks 22 and 29 – including Green Bay’s Datone Jones at 26. And that comes as absolutely no surprise. People in the know saw this coming for...
Mike Flanagan overcame a serious leg injury to start 82 games for Green Bay
Many people will write Derek Sherrod off should his surgically-repaired right leg keep him from taking part in training camp for a second consecutive summer – a distinct possibility considering the massive offensive lineman wasn’t medically cleared for either the minicamps in May or the OTAs in June. But...
Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy knows a season can go down the tubes in training camp.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Datone Jones is officially all signed up to begin his NFL career, finalizing his rookie contract with the Green Bay Packers on Wednesday.
Jones, the 26th overall pick in the 2013 draft, will receive a four-year contract that is worth 7.71 million over four years, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. FOX Sports was the first to report the signing.
Clay Matthews is the star of the defense, and the Packers need second-year players Nick Perry and Dezman Moses to step up.
The Green Bay Packers have signed top draft pick defensive end Datone Jones and safety Ryan McMahon on Thursday.
Jones was selected 26th overall in April out of UCLA, where he made a career-high 62 tackles (45 solo), including 19 tackles for loss, and a career-best 6 1/2 sacks in 2012. He has said the defense run by the Packers is similar to what he played in at UCLA.
