Browns hiring Packers executive Eliot Wolf

Offensive MVP WR Davante Adams Green Bay Packers promote Brian Gutekunst to general manager position

That means analytics still have a place in the organization, though all involved are expected to help the Browns take on a bold, new strategy: to actually win games. 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. He has served as the Director of Football Operations the past two seasons.

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.

Gutekunst and the Packers announced the signing of first-year running back Joel Bouagnon to a futures deal.

The Cleveland Browns front office makeover continues. 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, the Packers' director of football operations and 35-year-old son of Hall of Fame general manger Ron Wolf, interviewed for Green Bay's GM job that went to Brian Gutekunst as the team reorganized the front office and came up with a new personnel management structure.

Gutekunst was scheduled to interview for the Houston Texans' general manager position on Sunday. With everyone in the front office bringing successful experience and a unified message into the building, Jackson will need to get on board and quick. The annual NFL Scouting Combine begins in late February, about two weeks ahead of the March 14 start of the league year and free-agency period.

"We're lucky to add Alonzo and Eliot to our personnel staff", Dorsey said in a statement.
