The Browns will be hiring longtime Packers personnel executive Eliot Wolf, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora.

Highsmith served as a senior personnel executive for the Packers.

Wolf has worked for the Packers personnel department since 2004.

The younger Wolf, who reportedly had a job opportunity in Oakland with former Packers executive and current general manager Reggie McKenzie, had been the director of football operations in Green Bay since 2016. We are going to set out to find talented football players that possess that same passion for the game.

Russian Federation criticises USA decision to call United Nations meeting on Iranian protests
But Russia and some other countries said the UN's most powerful body had no business weighing in on the demonstrations. I agree with Roger Cohen that the Trump administration "should stop berating the nuclear deal".

Of course, the last time the Browns got their man before another team could swoop in was when they convinced head coach Hue Jackson to skip his interview with the New York Giants, and we all know how well that has turned out. "Adding Eliot and Alonzo to our personnel leadership group, that already includes Andrew Berry, will strengthen us and help us develop into the type of personnel department we need to achieve the success our great fans deserve". After serving as a scouting intern for the Packers in 1997 and a scouting assistant for the Kansas City Chiefs one year later, he was hired by Green Bay and has been with the team ever since.

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

Cleveland's rapidly growing front office continues to evolve under new general manager John Dorsey. 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.

Wolf now has the hard task of trying to help turn around the Browns after another pitiful season that saw them become just the second team to finish with an 0-16 record.
