He has considerable experience as he also worked in the roles of director of player personnel, director of pro personnel, assistant director of player personnel, and assistant director of pro personnel. Wolf will hold the title assistant general manager for the Browns, according to multiple reports. He worked out for Green Bay in early October.

Wolf picked the Browns over offers from the Packers and Oakland Raiders, sources told ESPN.

During Thompson's time as general manager, the Packers reached the playoffs nine times in 13 seasons and won Super Bowl XLV. He will be a vice president in Cleveland's personnel department.

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.

With two first-round picks and a pair of second-rounders, Dorsey and Wolf have the chance to make an immediate impact on a winless, uber-young roster previously overseen by the fired Sashi Brown.

Cleveland's rapidly growing front office continues to evolve under new general manager John Dorsey.

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.

Gutekunst and the Packers announced the signing of first-year running back Joel Bouagnon to a futures deal. So the front office gives him an immediate opportunity to propel change after a 0-16 season and a two-year record of 1-31 under Hue Jackson. Oddly, that is the title we had assumed was going to Highsmith. Dorsey (2000-2012) and Eliot (2004-17) were there for part of it.
