Ted Thompson is entering his 10th season as the Packers’ General Manager.
And according to Packers president Mark Murphy, the club would like Thompson’s service to extend well into a second decade in Green Bay.
According to Fox Sports Wisconsin and other media outlets, Murphy said Thursday that a new contract for the 61-year-old Thompson was “a top priority” for the franchise.
Thompson’s current deal is believed to run through 2016, according to Paul Imig of Fox Sports Wisconsin.
The Packers have made the playoffs five seasons in a row, winning the Super Bowl in 2010.
“Ted’s been instrumental in the run we’ve had,” Murphy said Thursday, per Packers.com.
Murphy has previously indicated a new deal for Thompson would come before a new contract for head coach Mike McCarthy, whose deal runs out after the 2015 campaign.
