Cleveland Browns add Green Bay Packers execs Wolf, Highsmith to front office

The Cleveland Browns are hiring Green Bay Packers executive Eliot Wolf to join their front office on a four-year deal to work with general manager John Dorsey, according to a CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora. All three have experience working in the personnel department from their time together with Dorsey in Kansas City with the Chiefs.

Of course, the last time the Browns got their man before another team could swoop in was when they convinced head coach Hue Jackson to skip his interview with the New York Giants, and we all know how well that has turned out. And the Pack didn't have to look far when it came to Thompson's successor.

Dorsey played for the Packers and has worked with the Wolfs.

Crash kills powerlifter and four friends
All the four players died on the spot, the reports said. Police are also probing the angle of drunken driving. A sixth weightlifter (19) was battling for life.

The Packers had a change in the front office with general manager Ted Thompson stepping down from his role. After stints as the assistant director of both player and pro personnel, he jumped to full-time gigs in both roles, ultimately being named director of football operations in 2016. Gutekunst had been director of player personnel. "Adding Eliot and Alonzo to our personnel leadership group, that already includes Andrew Berry, will strengthen us and help us develop into the type of personnel department we need to achieve the success our great fans deserve".

Wolf interviewed for Green Bay's opening at general manager this offseason, but Brian Gutekunst was picked over Wolf. A new coordinator would presumably have input on the rest of the offensive staff, and though nothing has been made official a person with knowledge of the situation told The Athletic, he expects at least two members of the Browns' 2017 coaching staff to eventually pursue other opportunities.

Wolf spent 14 years with the Packers, the last two as the team's director of football operations.
