Packers | Cullen Jenkins unlikely to return

Mon, 25 Feb 2013 16:12:29 -0800

Free-agent DL Cullen Jenkins (Eagles) is not likely to return to the Packers after being cut by the Eagles Monday, Feb. 25, according to Mike Vandermause of the Green Bay Press Gazette. Vandermause points out Packers general manager Ted Thompson let Jenkins go in free agency two years ago, and that Thompson historically does not sign 32-year- old players. Vandermause also suggests the team will likely look to fill their need on the defensive line with a younger player.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said WR Randall Cobb is arguably the best draft pick during general manager Ted Thompson's tenure.

"I think to get him where we got him, the kind of person that he is, the approach that he has, his knowledge of the game, what he adds to our team, his locker room presence, he is a personnel and a coach's dream."

Packers | Have spoken with McCloughan

Mon, 22 Mar 2010 07:43:12 -0700

Kevin Seifert, of ESPN.com, reports Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson said he has spoken with former San Francisco 49ers general manager Scot McCloughan recently "as a friend" but "not from a business standpoint." Technically, McCloughan remains an employee of the 49ers and would not be able to discuss job opportunities with any team. The Packers haven't yet filled the opening left behind by former director of football operations John Schneider, who left to become general manager of the Seattle Seahawks. Thompson said he wasn't certain whether the job will be filled. "We'll see," Thompson said. "It depends on how we make it through the spring. We're functioning pretty well right now."
