Browns To Pursue Eliot Wolf

Green Bay director of football operations Eliot Wolf lost out on the Packers GM job this week when Brian Gutekunst was given the promotion instead. If Wolf is feeling underappreciated, he may have opportunities to take his talents elsewhere. The Browns are planning to pursue the 35-year-old executive, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.comEliot Wolf

New Browns GM John Dorsey spent his playing career and much of his front office career with the Packers, so he has history with both Hall of Fame GM Ron Wolf and his son. The younger Wolf grew up around the team and is said to have began writing scouting reports on players at the age of 14.

The Browns and Wolf sound like a natural fit, but that union can only come together with the blessing of the Packers since Wolf is under contract. The Packers reserve the right to refuse any offer put in front of Wolf, with the exception of GM offers. Since the Browns already have their GM in Dorsey, they’d need some professional courtesy out of Green Bay to make it happen.

    Let me get this straight Highsmith bashes the pack and says the Browns are going in the right direction and Green Bay isn’t but they want Wolf?

      Anyone who puts the browns above the packers isn’t very bright.

    If Wolf doesn’t have the maturity to understand that someone else was a better fit for the GM job in Green Bay, let him go – for a 5th round pick.

      When has his maturity come into question? He stayed in Green Bay for years because he was considered the likely candidate to become the GM when Thompson left. He didn’t get it, and likely won’t be the GM of the Packers in the near future. He has every right at this point to interview, and accept, another GM or high powered front office position with another team. To call him immature for interviewing elsewhere or if the Packers were to deny any interview request for a promotion with another organization would be petty unless the Packers were willing to offer Wolf more power, which would likely create a power struggle between him and Gutekunst.

    I saw someone speculating on Twitter that the Browns could promote Dorsey to President and then hire Wolf as GM. I’m not sure if that’s a plausible scenario, but it would work.
