According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Wolf has accepted a four-year deal to join the Cleveland Browns front office.

Eliot Wolf has become a popular name as a potential National Football League general manager, but the Green Bay Packers passed over their in-house candidate in their search to replace Ted Thompson.

Gutekunst was scheduled to interview for the Houston Texans' general manager position on Sunday.

He has been with the Packers since 2004, when he joined the team as a pro personnel assistant under then coach/GM Mike Sherman. Alonzo and I share the same passion for this great game of football.

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. The same can also be said for the Browns' 2 current vice presidents of player personnel Andrew Berry and Ken Kovash. He was a college scout for 13 years until he was promoted to personnel executive in 2012.

It's a big loss for Green Bay, and potentially another sign that their grip on the NFC North is slipping. A new coordinator would presumably have input on the rest of the offensive staff, and though nothing has been made official a person with knowledge of the situation told The Athletic, he expects at least two members of the Browns' 2017 coaching staff to eventually pursue other opportunities. He'll be the assistant GM for the Browns.

The elder Wolf ran the Packers' personnel department from 1991 to 2001 and is beloved in the NFL's smallest city for turning around a struggling franchise. All three worked under Dorsey during his time with the Chiefs.
