Cleveland Browns poach Packers personnel exec Eliot Wolf

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 has worked for the Packers personnel department since 2004.

Cleveland.com sports columnist Doug Lesmerises thinks it tells us something we should've already known - that the front office is the best-functioning part of the Browns power structure.

Kawhi Leonard suffered 'partial tear' in shoulder, to be reevaluated this week
The Spurs took an extra cautious route with Kawhi Leonard's return and have maintained that path upon his return. While Leonard is without a timetable for a return, the team doesn't think the shoulder injury is serious.

Dorsey and Wolf, son of former Packers General Manager Ron Wolf, worked together for nine years in Green Bay.

In Green Bay, Wolf's main duties included coordinating the pro and college football departments; evaluating players in the NFL and college via film study; and managing the team's involvement in visits with college players, attendance at pro days, the annual NFL Scouting Combine, and the various college all-star games, including the Senior Bowl.

Cleveland now has a very distinct Green Bay feel to its front office. He's been a big reason for the consistent success the Packers have experienced over the last decade. Former Packers senior personnel executive Alonzo Highsmith was recently hired as the Browns' vice president of football operations.

Resident trying to kill spider causes apartment fire in Redding
Firefighters in Redding were called to a home in here someone had used a large torch lighter to fight back against a spider. The residents unsuccessfully tried to quench the blaze using a garden hose but, before long, a fire was raging in the room.

A former National Football League running back, Highsmith spent 19 years in Green Bay's scouting department.

Wolf now has the hard task of trying to help turn around the Browns after another pitiful season that saw them become just the second team to finish with an 0-16 record.

Ken Kovash who has served as vice president of player personnel for the last two seasons with the Browns, will transition to a vice president role in the club's strategy department.
