Browns Add Packers Execs Wolf, Highsmith To Front Office

Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey talks with owner Jimmy Haslam before an NFL football game between the Green Bay Packers and the Cleveland Browns Sunday Dec. 10 2017 in Cleveland

This week, the club promoted director of player personnel #Brian Gutekunst to general manager.

Wolf is the second Packers executive Dorsey has hired since he became the general manager of the Browns last month.

It's a big loss for Green Bay, and potentially another sign that their grip on the NFC North is slipping. Wolf reportedly also had an opportunity to join Reggie McKenzie with the Oakland Raiders.

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.

The rebuilding of the Cleveland Browns front office rolled along Wednesday as the team hired Eliot Wolf as assistant general manager. When it does, we'll find out about VP of Player Personnel Andrew Berry's role in the organization and maybe even get more detail on the future of Chief Strategy Officer Paul DePodesta.

That's an argument GOP lawmakers who want a deal are making to Trump to convince him he has maximum leverage now that will wane. Kevin McCarthy, who said that no deal on Dreamers could be reached without attaching border security measures to it.

Dorsey played for the Packers and has worked with the Wolfs. Dorsey spent 21 years in Green Bay's front office, while new vice president in the personnel department, Alonzo Highsmith, also spent time in Green Bay. Since 2012, he had held the title of senior personnel executive after spending 13 years in the team's college scouting department. We had great success together in Green Bay and we both understand the hard work it takes to create a winning environment. 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.

Dorsey is not confining his raiding to the Packers.

The Cleveland Browns have made a concerted effort over the last several weeks to refigure their front office with new personnel.

Jimmy Noel was named assistant director of pro scouting, Matt Donahoe as scout and Dan Zegers as personnel coordinator.
