Mike McCarthy Frustrated With Ted Thompson Not Signing Free Agents

Jan 24, 2016 5:19 PM

Mike McCarthy has grown frustrated with Ted Thompson's unwillingness to sign free agents for the Green Bay Packers.

The Packers have consistently relied heavily on the draft, but the first five selections in 2015 offered no help this season.

"Thompson operates like a glorified director of college scouting," writes McGinn in the piece.

The Packers' offense struggled in 2015 to perform at the level they've come to expect during Aaron Rodgers' tenure.

McCarthy: Eddie Lacy Can't Play Next Season At His 2015 Weight

Jan 18, 2016 11:48 PM

Mike McCarthy was clear that Eddie Lacy needs to return next season in better shape.

"Eddie Lacy, he's got a lot of work to do. His offseason last year was not good enough, and he never recovered from it," McCarthy said during his season-ending news conference two days after his team's 26-20 overtime loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday in the NFC divisional playoffs. "He cannot play at the weight he was at this year."

This is the second time McCarthy has called Lacy out for his weight.

McCarthy benched Lacy twice during the season, earlier in the year over lack of production and later in the year after Lacy missed curfew the night before the team's Dec. 3 game at Detroit.
