According to a report by Green Bay Packers beat writer Rob Demovsky, Eliot Wolf has picked the Browns over the Packers and Raiders, and will re-join GM John Dorsey in Cleveland.
Wolf, the son of Packers former GM Ron Wolf, is expected to join the Browns organization as the assistant GM.
He was one of three in-house candidates up for the open GM position with the Packers, but the team ultimately chose Brain Gutekunst for the position.
This to some could be considered a lateral move, since there was some speculation that the Packers wanted to use Wolf as part of a three-person tandem between Russ Ball, Gutekunst, and himself.
Wolf was the Director of Football Operations for the Packers and was with the organization since 2004.
CANTON, Ohio — Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre will be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Aug. 6, but his presenter was not unveiled during a teleconference Tuesday morning.
Favre answered questions from reporters for about 20 minutes, but when a question came up about who would present Favre into the Hall, the teleconference moderator said that announcement would be made “early next week.” Favre didn’t hesitate to reveal he wishes the late Irv Favre could hold that distinction.
“My dad definitely would have been doing it,” Favre said. “I’ll talk about that during my induction, but had he been around, he’d have been doing it.”
Favre lost his father on Dec. 21, 2003 and would go on to have one of the most iconic games of his career on “Monday Night Football” against the Raiders. The future Hall-of-Famer threw for 399 yards and four touchdowns in the contest, resulting in a 41-7 win over Oakland.
In Tuesday’s teleconference, Favre also discussed the risk former Packers general manager Ron Wolf took in trading a first round pick for Favre despite a failed physical. One of Green Bay’s doctors voiced concerns over a hip condition that he believed would limit Favre to a 5-to-7 year playing career.
