TED THOMPSON RUMORS & GOSSIP

Tretter Will Start Somewhere In ’17

JC Tretter will be a free agent next March, and between now and then GM Ted Thompson will have to decide whether to keep the talented and versatile young offensive lineman or let him walk away. The adjectives talented, versatile and young would normally guarantee an extension, but there’s nothing normal about this scenario. The former Cornell star proved last season he could get...

The Packers Punting Problem

With the Green Bay Packers offense struggling for most of last season, they could ill afford to have a bad year at the Punting position. Tim Masthay’s sudden drop in distance and hang time often put the defense in difficult positions, and had a huge negative impact on last season. The easy solution is to listen to the mob of Packers fans who want Masthay gone. However, as we...

The Future of the Green Bay Packers Offensive Line

When healthy, the Green Bay Packers offensive line has ranged from good to great over the last several years. Health has certainly been an issue, so depth needed to be addressed this offseason. The contracts of David Bakhtiari, Josh Sitton, TJ Lang, and JC Tretter are all set to expire at the end of next season, which shows why the Packers would invest two draft picks on the o-line...

Green Bay Packers to lean on rookie linebackers to produce in 2016

Thompson Has A Sixth Sense

I read an interesting statistic the other day that made me appreciate just how special Ted Thompson has been when it comes to drafting on day 3. According to the Pro Football Reference database, only 30 percent of sixth-round picks since 2010 have gone on to play at least five games in the National Football League. Since 2010, Thompson has drafted running back James Starks, offensive...

Packers and Thompson Commit to Draft Picks

Everyone who follows the NFL closely knows how much Green Bay Packers GM Ted Thompson values his draft picks. It comes as little surprise, then, that Thompson gives his drafted rookies plenty of opportunity to stay with the team. While many teams’ fans wonder whether the names called in the most recent NFL draft (especially those in the later rounds) will have any relevance to...

And many have laid the blame for the Green Bay Packers’ flaws in 2015 at the feet of the Thompson, the long-time GM who lives and dies by his draft and develop approach.
