Mark Murphy: Contract for Ted Thompson is a “top priority”

Green Bay Packers CEO Mark Murphy has made it clear that they want to sign general manager Ted Thompson is an extension very soon.

“It’s a top priority,” Murphy said, via FOX Sports Wisconsin.

Thompson sounded very upbeat after this past May’s draft.

“I’m just getting started,I feel pretty good,” Thompson said back in May.

Te belief is that Thompson’s current deal runs through 2016,  so they do have some time to get a new contract done.
