Ted Thompson

You’re going to have Ted Thompson to kick around for some time, it appears. Barring something unforeseen, Thompson is getting a contract extension with the Packers.

Big Ted’s current contract runs through the 2016 draft. After the season, people started speculating that he likely would decide to retire soon.

Not so!

Big Ted says he’s just getting started and Packers president Mark Murphy says a new deal for Big Ted is a priority.

“It’s a top priority,” Murphy said.

Oh, a top priority! Sorry.

There’s also been talk of a contract extension for coach Mike McCarthy, meaning the Dynamic Duo of Big Ted and Buffoon will be the gifts that keep on giving.

And, as much as we like to complain about those two clowns, the Packers have won a few games since they’ve been around. So what the hell, right?
