We're still knee deep in draft aftermath, but that's not the only topic swirling around the Packers. Team president Mark Murphy announced some changes to the front office, and while it doesn't come on the player personnel side, it's still significant.
Understandably, news regarding the business side of the Packers' front office can go unnoticed in the wake of the draft. However, it should be noted that while the NFL remains a male-dominated industry, the Packers have promoted Gabrielle Valdez Dow to a very prominent position. That's great news for gender equality and great for the team.
Just in case you've been living under a rock, here's the short version: To compensate for the losses of James Jones and Jermichael Finley (not official but expected), Packers GM Ted Thompson added Davante Adams, Richard Rodgers, Jared Abbrederis, and Jeff Janis. Chances are that one or more of these pass catchers will miss the final cut for the 53; that's how loaded Green Bay's offense has suddenly become.
The Packers aren't going to confirm that they've moved on from Jermichael Finley. Hell, Ted Thompson won't even confirm it's Wednesday. But when they made Richard Rodgers the 98th overall pick in this past weekend's NFL draft, they all but admitted that Finley's days in the green and gold are behind him.
Vic is always good for a few chuckles.
