On Monday, we talked about the Cleveland Browns’ interest in Eliot Wolf of the Green Bay Packers. According to Rob Demovsky of ESPN, Wolf had his interview with the Cleveland Browns on Tuesday, but there appears to be some pretty stiff competition for his services:
Eliot Wolf, who is in Cleveland interviewing with GM John Dorsey today, also has an offer to join Reggie McKenzie/Jon Gruden in Oakland, per a source. That's on top of the Packers' offer for him to be new GM Brian Gutekunst's right-hand man in Green Bay. https://t.co/F3oq77Oz8p— Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) January 9, 2018
Wolf can either stay with the organization he’s been with his entire career (Green Bay), go to a team that could be really exciting to work with Jon Gruden (Oakland), or join a few former buddies in John Dorsey and Alonzo Highsmith (Cleveland). The Browns’ situation might seem like the most dire of the three, but I’d guess that they’ll have a fighting chance depending on what level of responsibility they’re willing to give Wolf.
The fact that the Browns haven’t announced a title for Highsmith yet would seem to indicate that they’re waiting to see if Wolf joins, and how that might result in a tweaking of titles. As far as when Wolf’s decision will come, he’s expected to interview in Oakland on Thursday, so it won’t be before that:
Raiders to interview Eliot Wolf, Packers' director of football operations, for a senior position in player personnel department Thursday in Alameda, sources said. Job title yet to be defined. Won't be much of interview, given GM Reggie McKenzie's familiarity with him.— Michael Gehlken (@GehlkenNFL) January 9, 2018
