Eliot Wolf Reportedly Named Browns' Assistant GM After Leaving Packers

The son of former Packers general manager Ron Wolf, Eliot Wolf arrives in Cleveland after a 14-year stint in Green Bay, where he most recently served as the team's director of football operations.

Wolf's move to Cleveland comes in the wake of the Packers naming Brian Gutekunst as their next general manager to replace Ted Thompson.

Ron Wolf was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2015, one of the very few front office personnel men to ever earn such an honor.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports that the Browns have hired Wolf as assistant general manager on a four-year deal. But when Wolf was passed over for the Packers GM job, it seemed more likely that he would leave than stay with Green Bay.

There's nothing official on the coaching front as the Browns continue to weigh their options and meet with candidates.

It's a big loss for Green Bay, and potentially another sign that their grip on the NFC North is slipping.

"I really like the direction of where leadership is headed", Wolf said in the release announcing the moves. The 35-year-old originally joined the Packers as a pro personnel assistant back in 2004, working his way up through the organization with positions such as assistant director of pro personnel and director of player personnel.

They have resources, with 12 draft picks, including five in the first two rounds, and an expected $100 million in salary cap space. After starring at Miami, Highsmith was the No. 3 overall pick in the 1987 draft by the Houston Oilers.

The Browns have officially turned the page on the ill-fated Sashi Brown era by adding another experienced football executive to the front office. "It's great to reunite with John Dorsey". We had great success together in Green Bay and we both understand the hard work it takes to create a winning environment.

Still, a part of me will always wonder what might have been. He was the highest-ranking executive with a scouting background in the previous regime led by Sashi Brown, who was sacked December 7 and immediately replaced by Dorsey.

All three worked with the Chiefs under Dorsey, who was surprisingly let go by the team in June after four seasons. He also brought in Packers senior personnel executive Alonzo Highsmith as vice president of football operations.

The foundation of the Packers' success is built in the personnel room.
