"Several sources" tell the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel Packers coach Mike McCarthy is "fed up" with GM Ted Thompson's "unwillingness to take a chance and reinforce the roster with veteran players."
Thompson has built an annual contender out of the draft, but his aversion to signing veterans drafted elsewhere borders on the pathological/neurotic. It's rarely brought up as an issue since the Pack are always in the mix, but apparently it's become a point of contention in-house. According to longtime Packers reporter Bob McGinn, Thompson functions mostly as a "glorified director of college scouting." Thompson's 2015 roster was his weakest in multiple seasons. Perhaps he'll finally take a longer look at veteran free agents this year. Jan 24 - 1:28 PM

Packers signed GM Ted Thompson to a multi-year contract extension.

Thompson, 61, took over as the Packers' general manager in 2005 and has spent 18 years in the organization with a five-year stint in Seattle in between. Since taking over, the Packers have gone 86-57-1 and have won four NFC North titles and one Super Bowl. Thompson is one of the top decision-makers in the league.

Speaking Thursday, Packers president Mark Murphy called extending GM Ted Thompson's contract a "top priority."

"I think Ted's been instrumental obviously in the run we've had," Murphy said. "So that is a real priority." Thompson is signed through 2016, but isn't the sort of executive usually allowed to get near the end of a contract. Something will likely be worked out before Week 1.
