GREEN BAY, Wis – Former General Manager of Green Bay Packers, Ted Thompson, has died at the age of 68, according to multiple media reports

Very sad news I just heard from two sources that former #Packers GM Ted Thompson died last night. He had just turned 68, 17

Thompson was general manager of the Packers from 2005 to 2017 when he stepped aside. His first steps as GM included drafting quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft and assembling the team that would ultimately make the Super Bowl XLV won against the Pittsburgh Steelers

Thompson also hired Mike McCarthy as the team’s head coach in 2006 and designed other notable names that contributed to the Super Bowl title such as Jordy Nelson, Greg Jennings, BJ Raji, Clay Matthews, T.J Lang and Bryan Bulaga also convinced Charles Woodson to sign with the Packers as a free agent prior to the 2006 season

In May 2019, Thompson announced that he was diagnosed with an autonomic disorder that affects his nervous system
