Former Packers exec Wolf takes job in Browns' front office

Wolf served as the Packers' director of football operations for the last two years.

The Raiders also showed interest in Wolf, who opted for a Browns staff that now houses three former Packers front-office executives in Wolf, Dorsey and Alonzo Highsmith.

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.

Egypt's ex-PM Shafik says won't run for presidency
Egyptians living overseas are to cast their votes on March 16-18, he added, with second round ballots on April 19-21 if necessary. Egyptian rights and opposition lawyer Khaled Ali announced in November his intention to join the 2018 presidential race.

Chief strategy officer Paul DePodesta remains with the team but how he fits philosophically with Dorsey, who told 92.3 The Fan in December that he believes analytics comprises just 15 percent of the player evaluation process, and the new-look front office is unclear. Dorsey and friends will be tasked with correcting that positional weakness right away. Since 2016, he has served as the director of football operations for the NFC North power.

The Cleveland Browns have made a concerted effort over the last several weeks to refigure their front office with new personnel. However, there was a sense that he would depart from the organization after not getting the general manager position. Wolf will be assistant general manager with the Browns after 14 seasons with the Packers, and Highsmith has been named vice president of player personnel after 19 years with the Packers. In that time, Dorsey worked with Wolf's son, Eliot. After the Browns have compiled a 1-31 record the last two seasons, Dorsey and company are looking to add significant talent to the roster to make sure another miserable season does not happen.

There's nothing official on the coaching front as the Browns continue to weigh their options and meet with candidates.
