Ex-Packers GM Thompson reveals health issues

Former Packers GM Ted Thompson is suffering from a nerve disorder that causes weakness and cognitive issues, he said in a statement. Thompson, who played in the NFL for 10 years, said doctors say it does not appear to be CTE.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Former Packers GM Ted Thompson has issued a statement, via the Packers, on his health. Here it is in full: "Late in the 2017 season, Mark Murphy and I had a conversation about my health and future with the Packers. At that time, we mutually agreed that it was in the best interests of myself and the organization to step away from my role as general manager. In consultation with team physician Dr. John Gray, I began a complete health evaluation that has included second opinions over the last year from the Medical College of Wisconsin, the Mayo Clinic and the UT Southwestern Medical Center. "I have been diagnosed with an autonomic disorder. I feel that it's important to mention that based on the test results and opinions of medical specialists, they feel that I do not fit the profile of someone suffering from chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). "I want to thank Dr. Gray, the medical professionals, the Green Bay Packers and my family for all that they have done and continue to do for me. It was a tremendous honor to be inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame this past weekend. The Green Bay community and the fans of the Packers have always been and will continue to be very special to me. It is my hope and belief that I will be able to overcome this disorder. "Finally, I'd like to ask that you respect the privacy of myself and my family as we move forward."

In a busy day at the bottom of the 90-man offseason roster, the Packers claimed WR Jawill Davis off waivers from the Giants. He played in seven games last season (12 catches for 89 yards) as an undrafted rookie from Bethune-Cookman. So to review: They were at 88 to start the day. They signed CB Chandron Sullivan and WR Darrius Shepherd to get to 90. Two hours later, they waived RB Lavon Coleman to drop to 89 and then got back to a full roster about four hours later with the waiver claim of Davis.

Rashan Gary and Darnell Savage Jr. will be forever linked as 2019 first-round picks, but the two said despite playing in the Big Ten they didn't know each other before the Packers picked them. But it's clear they expect and the Packers expect Gary to help increase pressure on the quarterback and Savage to make plays on the ball in the secondary. "I told him, ‘Don't worry, man. you cover, I'm going to make sure you get a couple interceptions,'" Gary said. "So we're having fun."

Jordy Nelson, Mason Crosby, John Dorsey, Reggie McKenzie, Ron Wolf, Eliot Wolf, James Campen and Bob Harlan are among those who returned to Lambeau Field for Ted Thompson's induction into the Packers Hall of Fame. Said Nelson, who was drafted by Thompson: "A great person. I think you can tell by the people he brought into this organization. I think that was first and foremost— the (kind of) people he brought in was more important than the skill and the talent because he wanted the right locker room, the right guys in the community, the right leaders. Obviously I'm extremely thankful for what he's done for me and my family, giving us that opportunity. It's great to be back to see him receive this honor and see him again."
