This week, the club promoted director of player personnel #Brian Gutekunst to general manager.

The Green Bay Packers have signed RB Joel Bouagnon. A day earlier, the Raiders hired Jon Gruden to be their head coach.

Wolf was in high demand after being passed over for the general manager's job with the Green Bay Packers.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Wolf will receive a four-year contract to work under new Browns GM John Dorsey, also a former Packers executive. Gutekunst spent the last two seasons as director of player personnel.

The Packers have signed eight players to futures deals: Bouagnon, linebacker Ahmad Thomas, guard Kofi Amichia, receivers DeAngelo Yancey, Jake Kumerow and Colby Pearson, tight end Robert Tonyan and long snapper Zach Triner.

Highsmith, a former National Football League running back with the Houston Oilers, Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, spent the last 19 years in the Packers' personnel department. 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. So the front office gives him an immediate opportunity to propel change after a 0-16 season and a two-year record of 1-31 under Hue Jackson. Highsmith was there that entire 19-year run.

"We're lucky to add Alonzo and Eliot to our personnel staff", Dorsey said in the team's statement on the hires.

Dorsey is not confining his raiding to the Packers.

Cleveland.com sports columnist Doug Lesmerises thinks it tells us something we should've already known - that the front office is the best-functioning part of the Browns power structure. Oddly, that is the title we had assumed was going to Highsmith.
