A special night of remembrance for late Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson will include a tribute on the helmet of every player on the field for Monday night’s primetime showdown with the Detroit Lions.

The Packers will honor Thompson, who died in January, during halftime. The celebration will include his name going up inside the Lambeau Field.

The Packers will also be wearing a “TT” decal on the back of their helmets, as seen below:

It’s a small but important gesture celebrating one of the most important people in recent Packers history.

Thompson, a long-time scout for the franchise, took over the team in 2005 and built a Super Bowl winner, starting with his first draft pick – a quarterback from Cal named Aaron Rodgers.

It’s only fitting that Rodgers, now a three-time MVP, will wear the “TT” decal on his helmet on Monday night.

Thompson was a two-time NFL Executive of the Year. The Packers inducted him into the team’s Hall of Fame in 2019.

The Packers and Lions kick off at Lambeau Field at 7:15 p.m. CT.
