The long NFL offseason reaches its conclusion soon. With it, the wait for meaningful news and on-field action will finally end. But for fans of the Green Bay Packers, an early reprieve has arrived.
Yes, you can purchase the house of former Packers general manager Ted Thompson.
Technically, the house’s asking price is $499,900, so already you can plan to pay less than when you read the headline. The property, located at 222 Nicolet Place in west De Pere, gives you quick access to St. Norbert College where the Packers have held training camp since 1958. It also contains at least one tree, possibly more!
Speaking of training camp, the Packers have several activities planned around Lambeau Field from July 26-29. These include “Quick Slant, Hail Mary, and Training Camp challenges”, a punt, pass and kick competition, an area for kids, and a beer garden.
”Proven” sounds a little strong given that the most experienced running back in Green Bay’s stable, Ty Montgomery, has only played the position for a season and a half professionally. Still, the number of capable backs the Packers have heading into the 2018 season suggests a more productive ground game for the offense.
