Extending Ted Thompson is ‘top priority’ for Packers

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on July 10, 2014 – 3:56 pm

GREEN BAY–Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy reaffirmed the team’s wishes to extend General Manager Ted Thompson’s contract.

“It’s a top priority. Ted’s been instrumental in the run we’ve had. Yeah, so that’s a real priority,” Murphy said.

Murphy made those comments in reply to a question at a media conference on Thursday, during which Murphy revealed the team’s 2014 financial statement. Packers.com reporter Mike Spofford’s story on the Packers financials appears on the site.

Murphy was asked where the Packers rank in the NFL in ticket prices.

“This year, we anticipate we’ll be 17th in the league. We want to be affordable. We want people to be able to bring their family, but we want to be fair to the visiting team share,” Murphy said.

Murphy also said cell phone coverage within Lambeau Field will be enhanced for the 2014 season, and there are long-term plans to provide Wi-Fi throughout the stadium, as part of the Packers’ attempts to enrich the game-day experience.

Posted by Duke Bobber on June 25, 2014 – 11:53 am

140625-packers-rookies-600

NFL rookies attended the NFL Rookie Symposium in Ohio this week. The event serves as an orientation for all drafted rookies, covering topics such as player health and safety, decision making, and substance abuse/domestic violence prevention.

Packers first-round draft pick Ha Ha Clinton-Dix blogged about his experience on SportsBlog.com.

“This event is an eye-opener,” Clinton-Dix said. “It’s giving us an outlook on players who had great careers in the league and still made bad decisions. To see the things they went through, and listen to them talk about how we can avoid those mistakes, it’s definitely been helpful.”

The former Alabama safety sounded eager to start his rookie campaign in Green Bay.

“I’m very pumped and excited about the season,” Clinton-Dix said. “It’s a dream come true, leaving one title town and going to another. There’s a great fan base, great coaches, a great quarterback and a great team period.”
