Dorsey went to his Packers and Chiefs roots and shook up the Browns personnel department Wednesday with a series of moves created to help him reshape a roster that went 0-16 this season.

The Packers earned 10 trips to the playoffs in Wolf's 14 seasons, seven NFC North division titles and a victory in Super Bowl XLV.

The Green Bay Packers have found themselves a new general manager. "Adding Eliot and Alonzo to our personnel leadership group, that already includes Andrew Berry, will strengthen us and help us develop into the type of personnel department we need to achieve the success our great fans deserve". Wolf's background is mostly in pro scouting, and Highsmith was a college scout for 13 years before being promoted to senior personnel executive in 2012.

"He will be a GM really quick, so there's going to be a time when he's not here, and we're going to have to continue to move on", Gutekunst said Monday, according to Bill Huber of Packer Report. "I thought, and still think, I'm surprised that he doesn't have a job as a GM somewhere, somehow".

A former National Football League running back, Highsmith spent 19 years in Green Bay's scouting department. He's never worked for any organization outside of Green Bay, though he did have internships with the Atlanta Falcons.

Valentine wouldn't speak to whether police have identified any suspects or persons of interest, but said no suspect is in custody. The sheriff's department also said the friend is not a suspect at this time.

Seale has scouted numerous Packers' top picks in recent years. Highsmith is credited with pushing for the Packers to draft Donald Driver and sign undrafted Sam Shields, both serving significant roles when they played in Green Bay. He joined the Packers fresh out of the University of Miami way back in 2004. He worked under Thompson in Seattle for five years as an area scout. Brinker just finished his eighth year.

The Packers could also look outside the organization.

Though Gutekunst was hellbent on having Wolf as his right-hand man, he wasn't shy in admitting that he wouldn't be discontent with Wolf seeking other opportunities given other front offices had been in pursuit. Gutekunst spoke highly of his former colleague at his introductory press conference Monday.

Ryan Grigson, a senior personnel executive, has been dismissed. It will be on Gutekunst to make the right promotions - and identify the right people to hire - to ensure the Packers' personnel pipeline remains strong.
