It takes good front offices to build quality teams.
Green Bay’s front office has helped create almost 25 consecutive years of high quality play beginning with Brett Favre’s ascension to Aaron Rodger’s current dominant play. Other teams have noticed this and started to poach Green Bay’s front office talent.
The Kansas City Chiefs have hired Tim Terry as their new director of pro personnel. Terry spent the last 13 seasons in the Packers’ front office most recently as the assistant director of pro personnel. His duties with the Packers included scouting the NFL, Canadian Football League and Arena Football league as well as future opponents.

This is the second front office executive the Chiefs have hired away from Green Bay. Current Chiefs GM John Dorsey was with the Packers from 2004 through 2012 and worked with Terry throughout that period. The Chiefs, not unlike the Packers, have built heavily through the draft and retaining their own talent as opposed to making big free agent signings. Terry, who bounced around the NFL and CFL as a player, will help the team scout new talent to get the team over the playoff hump.
Are you worried that Green Bay is losing its scouts, or do you think the team will survive no matter what?
