The Green Bay Packers found their new GM

Eliot Wolf, highly regarded during 14 seasons with the Green Bay Packers, was hired on January 10 as the Browns assistant general manager, the Browns announced. Two of them received promotions, with Brian Gutekunst getting the nod as GM.

Dorsey went to his Packers and Chiefs roots and shook up the Browns personnel department Wednesday with a series of moves created to help him reshape a roster that went 0-16 this season.

The Browns are offering a four-year contract, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, citing a source.

With longtime Green Bay general manager Ted Thompson moving into a more ceremonial role, and Wolf departing the organization, there'll be a lot of pressure on Gutenkunst. The other two were vice president of football administration Russ Ball and director of football operations Eliot Wolf. He was scheduled to meet with the Oakland Raiders for a position in their front office, but the Browns were able to seal the deal before that could occur. He just finished up his 22nd year scouting players in Green Bay.

"I was a little bit surprised that Eliot Wolf didn't get the job", he said. With four picks in the top-40 of this year's draft, including two picks inside the top five, the Browns could be setup for a very bright future. "We're going to build this team the right way and to be a part of that from the ground up is going to be special". The 35-year-old originally joined the Packers as a pro personnel assistant back in 2004, working his way up through the organization with positions such as assistant director of pro personnel and director of player personnel. "It's great to reunite with John Dorsey". He'll be the assistant GM for the Browns. He is someone I've looked up to and has always been a mentor to me. Green Bay reached the postseason every year from 2009-16 - one season shy of the National Football League record - before having that string snapped after this year's 7-9 campaign. He worked for the team until 2012. Grigson, Berry's former boss with the Colts, was added by the Browns' non-traditional front office last spring. He also brought in Packers senior personnel executive Alonzo Highsmith as vice president of football operations.

Highsmith served as a senior personnel executive for the Packers.
