Cleveland Browns add Green Bay Packers execs Wolf, Highsmith to front office

Highsmith will serve as the Browns' Vice President of Player Personnel.

The younger Wolf, who reportedly had a job opportunity in Oakland with former Packers executive and current general manager Reggie McKenzie, had been the director of football operations in Green Bay since 2016.

The Green Bay Packers have signed RB Joel Bouagnon. According to Marc Sessler of NFL.com, the Oakland Raiders also had interest in adding Wolf to the front office, though he ultimately opted for Cleveland.

The Packers had a change in the front office with general manager Ted Thompson stepping down from his role.

Dustin Johnson opens 2018 with dominating victory at Sentry Tournament of Champions
The world record recognised by Guinness Records as the longest drive in a competition is 515-yards by 64-year-old Mike Austin. Not even", Johnson says. "It's really windy, and for the most part, all the shots I hit were the shots I wanted to hit".

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.

The Browns also confirmed three other hires further down the organizational chart, the dismissal of senior personnel executive Ryan Grigson and that both previous vice presidents of player personnel Andrew Berry and Ken Kovash will be retained. Owner Jimmy Haslam will surely be hoping Dorsey and Wolf can lead the Browns back to respectability with haste. Former Packers senior personnel executive Alonzo Highsmith was recently hired as the Browns' vice president of football operations. Green Bay reached the postseason every year from 2009-16 - one season shy of the National Football League record - before having that string snapped after this year's 7-9 campaign. The Browns finished the regular season without a victory and are now 1-31 in the last two seasons under head coach Hue Jackson.

The new-look Cleveland Browns' front office is beginning to take shape.

Jimmy Noel was named assistant director of pro scouting, Matt Donahoe as scout and Dan Zegers as personnel coordinator. "We're going to build this team the right way and to be a part of that from the ground up is going to be special".
