Thompson named NFL's Top Exec

In an award sponsored by The Sporting News and decided in a vote of general managers and other team executives, Packers' GM Ted Thompson has been named as the George Young NFL executive of the year. Thompson will receive the award at next week's NFL owners' meetings. There will be an article about Thompson in the March 31 issue of The Sporting News which hits newsstands tomorrow.

Congrats, Ted. A job well done. Despite all the doubters over the last few years, your plan is working. May it always be so.
