The architect of the Super Bowl XLV champion Green Bay Packers has passed away.
The Green Bay Press-Gazette reported Thursday afternoon that Ted Thompson died at the age of 68. Although a cause of death has not been released, he announced at his induction into the Packers Hall of Fame that he was suffering from an autonomic disorder. Autonomic disorders affect the part of the nervous system that controls your involuntary actions like your heartbeat.
Thompson was the Packers general manager for 13 years and was responsible for drafting current Packers players like Aaron Rodgers, Mason Crosby, Davante Adams, and David Bakhtiari.
