Browns Hire Eliot Wolf As Assistant GM

Though Gutekunst was hellbent on having Wolf as his right-hand man, he wasn't shy in admitting that he wouldn't be discontent with Wolf seeking other opportunities given other front offices had been in pursuit.

The biggest loser in the Green Bay Packers' general manager search might have been Eliot Wolf.

He will be reunited with longtime Packers executive and former Green Bay linebacker John Dorsey, now the Browns' GM, along with new Browns vice president of football operations and former Packers staffer Alonzo Highsmith. He chose to take the position with the Browns over offers from the Packers and Oakland Raiders for similar positions. 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.

As a part of the team's front office shakeup, the Browns also parted ways with former Indianapolis Colts general manager Ryan Grigson, who had spent the past season as a senior personnel executive in Cleveland. When the organization announced that Brian Gutekunst would be taking Thompson's role, Wolf, who was the director of football operations, did not receive a promotion.

A former National Football League running back, Highsmith spent 19 years in Green Bay's scouting department. With everyone in the front office bringing successful experience and a unified message into the building, Jackson will need to get on board and quick. Now, Wolf is moving on. Gutekunst had been director of player personnel.

According to the Browns, Ken Kovash, who has previously held Highsmith's title, will transition to a role in the team's strategy department. All three worked under Dorsey during his time with the Chiefs.
