TED THOMPSON RUMORS & GOSSIP

Defense Shouldn’t Be This Bad

Blame general manager Ted Thompson for squandering high draft picks on defensive players who have been either terrible (Jerel Worthy) or mediocre (B.J. Raji, Nick Perry and Mike Neal). Blame him for signing average players to big contracts (A.J. Hawk, Brad Jones and Morgan Burnett). And blame him for not using unrestricted free agency to plug gaping holes. But don’t blame him for...

Cory’s Corner: Anyone want to play nose tackle for the Packers?

As soon as B.J. Raji was lost for the season this past August, my mind started to race. I wondered if general manager Ted Thompson would pick up the phone and call Ryan Pickett. After all, the 6-foot-2, 310-pound defensive tackle played eight seasons for the Packers. He started all 16 games in 2012 and 2013. I also wondered if Thompson would kick the tires on Johnny Jolly. He received...

MVPs At The Quarter-Pole

The Packers finished the first four weeks of the season with a 2-2 record, which places them one game behind the division-leading Detroit Lions (that never sound right). Here’s a look at the team’s most valuable players at the quarter pole: MVP: A few months ago, there were actually people who questioned general manager Ted Thompson’s decision to give Jordy Nelson a four-year...

Few Vets Added During Season

I used to think being a meteorologist in San Diego was the most unnecessary job in the world, but I’ve changed my mind. I now think the most unnecessary job in the world is being a member of Green Bay’s pro personnel department. That’s because since 2011, the Packers have added a total of six veterans to their 53-man roster during the regular season. Six veterans in 3-plus...

Packers Should Be Proactive With Changes

One thing that has been consistent during the Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson era has been an unwillingness to adjust during seasons, and it has burned them before. So, it’s very unlikely that they will do anything drastic that I’m suggesting, but that doesn’t mean staying the course is the correct decision. Yes, it is only one game against the defending Super Bowl champions...

Packers architect Thompson signs extension, would be 'nuts' not to stay

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- When Ted Thompson reflected on the 17 total years he's spent with the Green Bay Packers and observed the roster that he'd built, there was no way he was going to allow himself to retire yet. In signing an extension to continue his run as general manager, executive vice president and director of football operations for the Packers, Thompson committed himself...

Green Bay Packers GM Ted Thompson ranked top-10 in the NFL

Typically speaking, sports fans tend to worry about two things – the past and the future. They’ll debate who was the greatest player of all-time, while also spending hours discussing whether or not a rookie is going to be develop into an All-Pro. Both are fun exercises, things that keep fans engaged and the beer flowing at the local tavern. But they miss out on what is most important...

Green Bay Packers: Grading all 9 draft picks

The 2014 NFL draft has come to a close and the Green Bay Packers did something they have never done in the Ted Thompson era.  Thompson did not trade any of the Packers’ nine draft picks.  The Packers filled their biggest need in round one, and helped made some nice offensive additions in the later rounds.  Here are my pick by pick grades for the Packers 2014 draft class. Round...

Green Bay Packers Hit Home Run with Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

Ted Thompson is often criticized for not being more aggressive but sometimes it pays off more to be patient and no one played it cooler in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft than Thompson and the Packers, who came away from the draft with top-rated safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix with the 21st overall selection. Ever since former pro bowl safety Nick Collins was lost to a career-ending...

Seahawks GM Schneider could end up succeeding Packers Thompson

Seahawks GM John Schneider could end up succeeding the Packers Ted Thompson when the latter retires, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel’s Bob McGinn reports.
