Wolf is the son of former Packers general manager and Hall of Famer Ron Wolf.
Cleveland.com sports columnist Doug Lesmerises thinks it tells us something we should've already known - that the front office is the best-functioning part of the Browns power structure. Wolf will hold the title assistant general manager for the Browns, according to multiple reports.
The Browns also confirmed three other hires further down the organizational chart, the dismissal of senior personnel executive Ryan Grigson and that both previous vice presidents of player personnel Andrew Berry and Ken Kovash will be retained.
"Eliot has been a fine executive in this league for some time now". He reportedly had an offer to join coach Jon Gruden in Oakland. Alonzo Highsmith, a former senior personnel executive with Green Bay, accepted a job with Cleveland last week, but his official title remains unclear.
Gutekunst and the Packers announced the signing of first-year running back Joel Bouagnon to a futures deal.
It's a big loss for Green Bay, and potentially another sign that their grip on the NFC North is slipping. Like Dorsey, Highsmith is a former player who went into scouting with the Packers. He was a college scout for 13 years until he was promoted to personnel executive in 2012. The Browns finished the regular season without a victory and are now 1-31 in the last two seasons under head coach Hue Jackson.
Jimmy Noel was named assistant director of pro scouting, Matt Donahoe as scout and Dan Zegers as personnel coordinator.
For now, what can we say about Highsmith joining the Browns?
