The Green Bay Packers have enjoyed a lot of winning the past half-decade.

The organization wanted to ensure that continues by locking up general manager Ted Thompson to a new multi-year contract. The Packers have enjoyed a recent run of five consecutive playoff appearances under Thompson's watch.

“His outstanding work has been the key factor in the success that we’ve enjoyed in recent years," Packers president and team CEO Mark Murphy said. "I have tremendous respect for Ted, and am confident that we will continue to contend for championships under his leadership.”

Thompson is entering his 10th season with the Packers with the organization still trending upward. It was a no-brainer for Green Bay to keep their architect happy.
