Three Green Bay Packers football executives ran for the general manager's job in the past week.

The 35-year-old Wolf met with Dorsey on Tuesday after the Packers elected to hire Brian Gutekunst as their general manager.

Gutekunst had said he'd hoped Wolf would stick around to be his "right-hand man", but instead Wolf will fill that role in Cleveland.

Wolf, who is the son of Hall of Fame executive Ron Wolf, also had an opportunity to remain in Green Bay or join Reggie McKenzie and Jon Gruden in Oakland. The other two were vice president of football administration Russ Ball and director of football operations Eliot Wolf. Dorsey was in the front office as the director of collegiate scouting.

It's a big loss for Green Bay, and potentially another sign that their grip on the NFC North is slipping. With four picks in the top-40 of this year's draft, including two picks inside the top five, the Browns could be setup for a very bright future.

Police arrests four Kashmiri cricketers for respecting Pakistani national anthem
While talking to Kashmir Reader, Senior Superintendent of Police Bandipora confirmed the incident and that an FIR has been filed. The police has registered a case against two cricket teams for singing Pakistan's national anthem.

"I was a little bit surprised that Eliot Wolf didn't get the job", he said. "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".

A former National Football League running back, Highsmith spent 19 years in Green Bay's scouting department. After starring at Miami, Highsmith was the No. 3 overall pick in the 1987 draft by the Houston Oilers. Highsmith has reportedly joined the Browns front office, but it has not been made official by the team.

"This is going to be an exciting challenge", Highsmith said. He was the highest-ranking executive with a scouting background in the previous regime led by Sashi Brown, who was sacked December 7 and immediately replaced by Dorsey. He is someone I've looked up to and has always been a mentor to me. He worked for the team until 2012.

"Obviously, the people up there (Green Bay) don't think he's worthy, or they would've hired him", Ron Wolf told ESPN earlier this week. "Some of my fondest memories in football were playing the Browns in the playoffs one year and the fans throwing dog bones at us so we had to turn around and play that series at the opposite end zone". The same can also be said for the Browns' 2 current vice presidents of player personnel Andrew Berry and Ken Kovash.

Ryan Grigson, a senior personnel executive, has been dismissed.
