Cleveland Browns poach Packers personnel exec Eliot Wolf

Eliot Wolf, highly regarded during 14 seasons with the Green Bay Packers, was hired on January 10 as the Browns assistant general manager, the Browns announced.

It was there that he worked alongside new Browns general manager John Dorsey, who worked for the Packers from 1991-1998 and 2000-2012.

The 35-year-old Wolf - the son of Hall of Fame front-office legend Ron Wolf - met with Dorsey and the Browns on Tuesday after the Packers opted to hire Brian Gutekunst for their general manager role.

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.

Three Green Bay Packers football executives ran for the general manager's job in the past week.

"Obviously, the people up there (Green Bay) don't think he's worthy, or they would've hired him", Ron Wolf told ESPN earlier this week.

Wolf will join a revamped front office looking to turn the tide on the most downtrodden franchise in the NFL. Owner Jimmy Haslam will surely be hoping Dorsey and Wolf can lead the Browns back to respectability with haste.

Wolf is the second former Packers executive hired by Dorsey in the last 2 weeks. Former Packers senior personnel executive Alonzo Highsmith was recently hired as the Browns' vice president of football operations.
