Former Packers GM Ted Thompson passes away at 68

Ted Thompson

Former Packers GM Ted Thompson has died at age 68. Although no definitive cause of death has been reported, it is known he had suffered from health problems in the past few years.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Packers reporter, Tom Silverstein, reported the news on Thursday afternoon via Twitter.

Thompson was the GM for the Green Bay Packers from 2005-2017. He held other front office positions from 1992 before being hired as the general manager in 2005. The team won one Super Bowl in 2011 under his watch as the highest-ranking front office employee in the Packers organization.

He is responsible for drafting some Packers all-timers such as Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews, Bryan Bulaga and Greg Jennings. The team moved on from Thompson in 2017, but gave him a different role in lieu of firing the man who gave them another Super Bowl.

Current and former Packers are paying their respects to Thompson on social media and via interviews.
