Eliot Wolf is Leaving for the Cleveland Browns

New Packers GM Brian Gutekunst speaks at an introductory press conference Monday

The Browns made official Wednesday the additions of Eliot Wolf and Alonzo Highsmith to the personnel department led by general manager John Dorsey. The former Chiefs general manager (2013-June 2017) has also added three former members of the front office in Kansas City to the Browns' personnel department. "We're going to build this team the right way and to be a part of that from the ground up is going to be special". He's been a big reason for the consistent success the Packers have experienced over the last decade. In turn, the hiring of Highsmith - Dorsey and Highsmith worked together in Green Bay - is that traditional NFL GM's resume at work. The same can also be said for the Browns' 2 current vice presidents of player personnel Andrew Berry and Ken Kovash.

Eliot Wolf started working as a scout with the Packers in 2004 and was promoted five times, most recently to director of football operations in 2016.

With two first-round picks and a pair of second-rounders, Dorsey and Wolf have the chance to make an immediate impact on a winless, uber-young roster previously overseen by the fired Sashi Brown.

Gutekunst and the Packers announced the signing of first-year running back Joel Bouagnon to a futures deal.


Wolf interviewed for Green Bay's opening at general manager this offseason, but Brian Gutekunst was picked over Wolf.

The Browns are now setup for the front office to do just that.

With head coaching vacancies remaining around the league and other teams replacing coordinators and position coaches, the coaching staff situation remains fluid.

Wolf spent 14 years with the Packers, the last two as the team's director of football operations. In that time, Dorsey worked with Wolf's son, Eliot.
