Cleveland Browns poach Packers personnel exec Eliot Wolf

Highsmith was a senior personnel executive and Wolf was director of football operations. Highsmith is credited with pushing for the Packers to draft Donald Driver and sign undrafted Sam Shields, both serving significant roles when they played in Green Bay.

Wolf picked the Browns over offers from the Packers and Oakland Raiders, sources told ESPN.

So the Packers managed to piss just about everyone else in the front office off in hiring Brian Gutekunst as general manager.

Amazon chief Jeff Bezos is richer than anyone has ever been
Although Bezos' wealth is the largest overall figure, it does not compare to famously wealthy individuals in the past. Bill Gates takes a place in the runner-up position with an equally staggering net worth of over $92 billion.


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. When it does, we'll find out about VP of Player Personnel Andrew Berry's role in the organization and maybe even get more detail on the future of Chief Strategy Officer Paul DePodesta.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported the deal is for five years for Gutekunst, who has been with the Packers for 19 years and was promoted to director of player personnel on March 21, 2016.

Wolf, 35, was being courted by the Oakland Raiders, where he would have been working alongside Reggie McKenzie, another former Packer executive with whom Wolf worked in Green Bay. Like Dorsey, Highsmith is a former player who went into scouting with the Packers. A total of 13 years as a scout for the East Coast region (1999-2000) and then the Southeast region (2001-11) was followed by his promotion to director of player personnel. "I believe in the Haslams (owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam), Coach (Hue) Jackson and John, and I'm looking forward to helping build the type of team Cleveland Browns fans will be proud of". Highsmith has reportedly joined the Browns front office, but it has not been made official by the team.
