Packers GM Ted Thompson reveals his sinister truth in an exclusive interview.
We’re pretty excited here at Jersey Al’s AllGreenBayPackers.com today. Not only is the excitement of free agency in full swing, but we also managed to secure an exclusive interview with Packers GM Ted Thompson. In a shocking turn of events, he completely opened up about his free agency strategies, as well as revealed a truth we’ve never heard before.
We hope you enjoy reading it . . .
AllGreenBayPackers.com: Good afternoon. The start of free agency kicked off this week with teams scrambling to make deals and update their rosters. How busy have the Green Bay offices been these past few days?
Ted Thompson: You know, our philosophy with free agency has always been a “wait and see” approach. There’s no point in making crazy 24-hour or 48-hour offers, because then you just end up overpaying for guys. In fact, most of our front office staff is given time off this week, so it’s just me and a couple other guys in ...

AROUND THE WEB
It’s that time of year when every “football analyst” comes out of the wood work to give their two cents on where they expect players to fall in the draft.
As I was going through the latest mock drafts, I saw one prediction that made my jaw absolutely drop. Vanderbilt’s Jordan Rodgers, little brother to Aaron Rodgers, would be picked up by Green Bay in the 7th round.
Packers LB A.J. Hawk
A.J. Hawk has agreed to restructure the final three years of his contract with the Packers, according to Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
In 2011, the team cut Hawk before re-signing him to a five-year, $33.75 million deal.
Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel tweeted that Hawk’s contract was, in fact, restructured, and that the result...
Unfortunately for Packers fans, we won’t be seeing Tom Crabtree making any Lambeau Leaps this season.
The next time Tom Crabtree catches a touchdown, executes a fake field goal, or makes you laugh out loud with one of his Tweets, it won’t be as a member of the Green Bay Packers.
The tight end reportedly has signed a two-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Packers declined...
The Green Bay Packers lost out in the Steven Jackson sweepstakes Thursday afternoon when the Atlanta Falcons signed him to a 4-year, $12 million deal. While the signing of Jackson would’ve been a nice boost at a position that’s currently of major mediocrity, it’s obvious GM Ted Thompson is much less worried about a position the Packers seldom use. He’s more concerned with...

It's not the type of splashy free-agent move most teams in the NFL are making, but the Green Bay Packers have retained one of their own.
According to multiple reports, Robert Francois signed a one-year deal to remain in Green Bay.
Francois is an inside linebacker, but he did not play a single snap on defense last season. His main role was on special teams, where he finished with...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Greg Jennings is no longer a member of the Green Bay Packers.
Jennings won't be going far, though, staying within the NFC North by signing whatESPN's Josina Anderson says is a five-year deal for 47.5 million with 18.5 million guaranteed.
The five-year deal for the 29-year-old wide receiver means that Jennings could be with the Vikings until he's 34...
Greg Jennings is now a member of the Minnesota Vikings
Almost four years after one beloved Green Bay Packer left for the Land of 10000 Lakes (and zero Lombardi Trophies), another member of the Green and Gold will don the purple.
That’s right, per Adam Schefter of ESPN now former Packers WR Greg Jennings has signed a five-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings.
After trading away...
Tight end Tom Crabtree has signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to a tweet from his marketing agent.
Crabtree was a restricted free agent entering the offseason, but the Packers decided not to tender him an offer and that gave him unrestricted status.
The terms of Crabtree's contract with the Buccaneers are not yet known.
Crabtree, 27, was part of a deep tight end...
The Packers went from an offense with Greg Jennings and Steven Jackson to an offense with neither in the span of about 24 hours. Green Bay entered the offseason needing to upgrade its defense. Now, it will have to upgrade the offense, too, if it wants to remain relevant in the NFC.
Pro Bowl quarterback Aaron Rodgers has never once talked about holding out
Not that it was ever – I repeat ever – a possibility, but Mike Freeman of CBS Sports needed to inform us last week that Aaron Rodgers won’t hold out. Well, if Mike continues to feel the need to waste his time writing stories about complete non-stories, I have a few suggestions of my own. He can tell...
