Former Super Bowl-winning Packers GM Ted Thompson Dies At 68
GREEN BAY, Wis.: Ted Thompson, whose 13-year run as Green Bay Packers general manager included their 2010 Super Bowl championship season, has died. He was 68.
The Packers announced Thursday that Thompson died the previous night at his home in Atlanta, Texas. A Packers official said the team was contacted by a direct family member.
Thompson was Packers general manager from 2005-17 and drafted many notable players on the current roster, including two-time MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He acquired 49 of the 53 players on the Packers' 2010 championship team.
Thompson spent over two decades in the Packers front office and was the teams director of pro personnel when the Packers won the Super Bowl for the 1996 season and captured the NFC title the following year.
