Ed Policy had a good role model. In 1983, his father, Carmen, became the vice president and general counsel of the San Francisco 49ers. And yesterday, the Green Bay Packers announced that Ed would be taking on that role for its organization.
Policy, who is 41, is replacing the team’s former GC, Jason Wied, who resigned in January citing an addiction to an herbal remedy he used to treat insomnia and sleep apnea. Wied had taken a two-month leave of absence before announcing his resignation.
