Eliot Wolf is in demand as a GM, but many doubt he'll leave Green Bay
It would be a surprise to see Wolf, whose father is in Lambeau Field's Ring of Honor, leave Green Bay for a general manager opening.
Green Bay executive Eliot Wolf has a strong consensus of support as a future general manager and will be approached by several teams with openings this winter, sources said, though it will be difficult to pry him from the Packers. Wolf, whose father, Ron, was recently added to the Ring of Honor at Lambeau Field, has been literally raised as a Packers supporter. He is viewed internally as the heir apparent to current GM Ted Thompson by many in the organization, and despite all of the interest in him, a departure would be viewed as a surprise at this point.
Wolf, who has been trained by some of the best evaluators in the game, has steadily risen up the team's ranks and would be selective about any options he considered, sources said. The Lions are among those with interest in him, although leaving Green Bay to then face the Packers twice a year might be less than appealing to him, and Wolf's standing within his current team could not be higher.
Wolf's father is a member of the NFL's committee that recommends front-office executives for potential openings, and he is held in high regard around the league. He was elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2015 and his family tree has spawned current GMs such as Seattle's John Schneider and Kansas City's John Dorsey. Eliot Wolf is Green Bay's pro personnel director and has been a top target for general manager jobs for several years.
