Though Gutekunst was hellbent on having Wolf as his right-hand man, he wasn't shy in admitting that he wouldn't be discontent with Wolf seeking other opportunities given other front offices had been in pursuit.

That's what it seemed like Eliot Wolf's situation was with the Green Bay Packers, right up until they passed over him for Brian Gutekunst. He will work under General Manager John Dorsey, who was hired five weeks ago when the Browns fired Brown as executive VP of football operations. Gutekunst is the 10th person to hold that title for Green Bay, and is entering his 20th season with the team.

2 more die of Swine Flu at SKIMS, toll rises to 27
A study also done on flu vaccination said that it can significantly reduce a child's risk of dying from influenza. There have been 3,854 total flu-associated hospitalizations in OH since flu season began last October.


"Eliot has been a fine executive in this league for some time now". 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. He worked out for Green Bay in early October. He's been a big reason for the consistent success the Packers have experienced over the last decade.

Wolf picked the Browns over offers from the Packers and Oakland Raiders, sources told ESPN. Wolf's background is mostly in pro scouting, and Highsmith was a college scout for 13 years before being promoted to senior personnel executive in 2012. 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. The Browns finished the regular season without a victory and are now 1-31 in the last two seasons under head coach Hue Jackson. He will be a vice president in Cleveland's personnel department.
