Report: Former Packers GM Ted Thompson dies at age 68

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WISC) — Former Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson has died at the age of 68, according to multiple media reports.

Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel was one of the first to report Thompson’s death.

Thompson served as the Packers’ general manager from 2005 until 2017, when he stepped aside. Among his first moves as GM was drafting quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft and assembled the team that ultimately won Super Bowl XLV over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

In May 2019, Thompson revealed he had been diagnosed with an autonomic disorder affecting his nervous system.
