Browns hiring Packers executive Eliot Wolf

Eliot Wolf has become a popular name as a potential National Football League general manager, but the Green Bay Packers passed over their in-house candidate in their search to replace Ted Thompson.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported the deal is for five years for Gutekunst, who has been with the Packers for 19 years and was promoted to director of player personnel on March 21, 2016. Wolf will serve as the team's assistant general manager, while Highsmith has been named the vice president of player personnel. And it possesses plenty of Green Bay flavor. Wolf reportedly also had an opportunity to join Reggie McKenzie with the Oakland Raiders. "I really like the direction of where leadership is headed".

In Green Bay, Wolf's main duties included coordinating the pro and college football departments; evaluating players in the NFL and college via film study; and managing the team's involvement in visits with college players, attendance at pro days, the annual NFL Scouting Combine, and the various college all-star games, including the Senior Bowl. We had great success together in Green Bay and we both understand the hard work it takes to create a winning environment. "I believe in the Haslams (owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam), Coach (Hue) Jackson and John, and I'm looking forward to helping build the type of team Cleveland Browns fans will be proud of". Dorsey (2000-2012) and Eliot (2004-17) were there for part of it.

The Packers had a change in the front office with general manager Ted Thompson stepping down from his role. The same can also be said for the Browns' 2 current vice presidents of player personnel Andrew Berry and Ken Kovash. Noel, Donahoe and Zegers all previously spent time in the Kansas City Chiefs personnel department.
