In Green Bay, Wolf's main duties included coordinating the pro and college football departments; evaluating players in the NFL and college via film study; and managing the team's involvement in visits with college players, attendance at pro days, the annual NFL Scouting Combine, and the various college all-star games, including the Senior Bowl. Wolf, 35, is the son of Hall of Fame executive and Jimmy Haslam confidant Ron Wolf. Wolf will serve as the team's assistant general manager, while Highsmith has been named the vice president of player personnel.

The Green Bay Packers have signed RB Joel Bouagnon. Gutekunst had been director of player personnel.

As a part of the team's front office shakeup, the Browns also parted ways with former Indianapolis Colts general manager Ryan Grigson, who had spent the past season as a senior personnel executive in Cleveland. He's been a big reason for the consistent success the Packers have experienced over the last decade.

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

"We're lucky to add Alonzo and Eliot to our personnel staff", Dorsey said in the team's statement on the hires.

The Browns are now setup for the front office to do just that. However, there was a sense that he would depart from the organization after not getting the general manager position. Hence the team with more NFL titles than any other in league annals was in search for his replacement. Jackson discussed the possibility of adding an offensive coordinator multiple times in December and early this month but never committed to it.

Wolf was a candidate for the Packers GM job, but the job went to Brian Gutekunst. He'll be the assistant GM for the Browns.
