GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The general manager of the Green Bay Packers has signed a multi-year contract extension.
The Packers gave no details of Ted Thompson's new deal Wednesday. He had two years left on his current contract.
Team president Mark Murphy said Thompson's work was the main reason the Packers have had so much success in recent years. He's into his 10th season as Green Bay's GM.
Thompson said he wouldn't want to walk away from his current post, saying he's responsible for the people he works with.
The 61-year-old Executive Vice President and Director of Football Operations said he's been asked a lot if he ever thought about walking away -- and he hasn't.
Asked how long he wants to remain as the GM, Thompson said he'll let things play themselves out -- and a lot of people can be very productive later in life.
