Packers administrator takes leave of absence

Jason Wied, a vice president and general counsel for the Green Bay Packers, has taken a leave of absence from the organization.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Weid’s absence is indefinite and in order to handle personal reasons.

Jason is going to take some time to take care of a personal matter,” team president Mark Murphy said. “Our senior staff and leadership team will handle his duties during his absence.”

Wied represents the team at NFL meetings and oversees the club’s administration, which includes plans for expansion at Lambeau Field. Wied joined the Packers as a corporate counsel in 2000.
