The Cleveland Browns will name Eliot Wolf as the team's assistant general manager, multiple outlets reported on Wednesday. "Alonzo's 25 years of experience in the National Football League as a player, scout and personnel executive give him a unique perspective when it comes to evaluating talent and building a team".

The Browns also announced they have parted ways with Ryan Griggson, who had the title of senior personnel executive in his only season with the Browns after being fired by the Colts as their general manager.

Cleveland.com sports columnist Doug Lesmerises thinks it tells us something we should've already known - that the front office is the best-functioning part of the Browns power structure. Wolf will be assistant general manager with the Browns after 14 seasons with the Packers, and Highsmith has been named vice president of player personnel after 19 years with the Packers. We are going to set out to find talented football players that possess that same passion for the game. The same can also be said for the Browns' 2 current vice presidents of player personnel Andrew Berry and Ken Kovash.

While he did not witness everything that led to Hargrave's attest, he "absolutely" stood by the marshal, he said. After the board approved the raise, Hargrave was again recognized by the board and voiced her frustrations.

It's a big loss for Green Bay, and potentially another sign that their grip on the NFC North is slipping.

He will be reunited with longtime Packers executive and former Green Bay linebacker John Dorsey, now the Browns' GM.

Gutekunst offered Wolf a spot in his department to remain with the Packers as his "right-hand man". Since 2012, he had held the title of senior personnel executive after spending 13 years in the team's college scouting department. The Browns finished the regular season without a victory and are now 1-31 in the last two seasons under head coach Hue Jackson. Highsmith has reportedly joined the Browns front office, but it has not been made official by the team.
