Eliot Wolf has become a popular name as a potential National Football League general manager, but the Green Bay Packers passed over their in-house candidate in their search to replace Ted Thompson.
The one man who did not, Eliot Wolf, is reportedly now with the Cleveland Browns.
The Packers had a change in the front office with general manager Ted Thompson stepping down from his role. Since 2016, he has served as the director of football operations for the NFC North power. The 35-year-old Wolf was the Packers' director of football operations and recently interviewed to be their GM. He had been scheduled to fly to Oakland, where he had an offer to work with Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie. Team president Mark Murphy went with Brian Gutekunst, the Packers' director of player personnel. The team also blocked him from taking several interviews for open general manager jobs in recent years.
Gutekunst and the Packers will now have to find a new top scout under the general manager.
Gutekunst likely will promote director of college scouting Jon-Eric Sullivan and director of pro personnel John Wojciechowski to be his top assistants. Alonzo Highsmith, a former senior personnel executive with Green Bay, accepted a job with Cleveland last week, but his official title remains unclear.
