Eliot Wolf becomes the third former Packers executive to land in the Browns front office this offseason.

The Green Bay Packers have lost another high-ranking member of their front office. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Eliot Wolf has accepted an assistant general manager position with the Cleveland Browns.

Wolf, the son of Hall of Fame general manager Ron Wolf, has garnered consideration for GM positions in recent years. That list includes the Packers, who interviewed him as part of their search for Ted Thompson’s replacement. That job went to Brian Gutekunst, leaving Wolf to consider opportunities elsewhere.

Wolf becomes the third former member of the Packers front office to land with the Browns in recent weeks. Cleveland hired John Dorsey, who worked in Green Bay for over 20 years, as its general manager shortly before the end of the 2017 regular season. Alonzo Highsmith soon joined Dorsey after the Packers began a GM search that apparently did not include him. After losing out to Gutekunst, Wolf looked outside the organization as well, finding the best landing spot with the Browns.

With Wolf and others leaving the front office, the Packers will look to fill positions beneath Gutekunst and executive vice president Russ Ball.
