Packers president Mark Murphy said he hasn’t made a decision regarding who will eventually replace GM Ted Thompson. 

“I don’t think you can make promises,” Murphy said via Rob Demovsky of “Especially [because] the league changes so much year to year.

Murphy wouldn’t say how long Thompson’s contract runs or if the team would consider offering him an extension.

“I know there’s a lot obviously written about this year, but we’ve been in this situation before,” Murphy said. “Over the last four or five years, we lost John Schneider and John Dorsey and Reggie. We’ve got a good staff in place, and Ted’s assembled some really talented people. The success we’ve had over the last five to 10 years, people in the league notice. And the people that we’ve lost have had a lot of success now. So it’s a tribute to them.
