Cleveland Browns poach Packers personnel exec Eliot Wolf

Cleveland Browns poach Packers personnel exec Eliot Wolf

Gutekunst has been Green Bay's player personnel director for almost two years, though he has been with the Packers' player personnel department for almost two decades. 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.

It leaves the younger Wolf's future with the organization in question. A source told ESPN that Brown GM John Dorsey, a former Packers' personnel executive, planned to go after Wolf. It's been great to watch him grow up around this league when I was with him in Green Bay and from afar for the last five-plus years. Gutekunst is the 10th person to hold that title for Green Bay, and is entering his 20th season with the team.

In Green Bay, Wolf's main duties included coordinating the pro and college football departments; evaluating players in the NFL and college via film study; and managing the team's involvement in visits with college players, attendance at pro days, the annual NFL Scouting Combine, and the various college all-star games, including the Senior Bowl.

"This is going to be an exciting challenge", Highsmith said. He's someone I've looked up to and has always been a mentor to me. Dorsey (2000-2012) and Eliot (2004-17) were there for part of it.

So the Packers managed to piss just about everyone else in the front office off in hiring Brian Gutekunst as general manager.

Finally, Ken Kovash will move into a vice president position in the strategy department after spending the past two years as vice president of player personnel. Noel, Donahoe and Zegers all previously spent time in the Kansas City Chiefs personnel department.
