Green Bay Packers Director of Football Operations, Eliot Wolf, withdrew his name from consideration for the San Francisco 49ers general manager and has reportedly signed a new deal with the Packers.
The Packers increased Wolf’s salary but isn’t believed to have received a new title with his latest deal.
The 34-year-old Wolf, who is the son of former Packers general manager Ron Wolf, is most likely a strong candidate to succeed Ted Thompson when the 64-year-old general manager decides to retire.
This is Wolf’s fifth promotion since Ted Thompson took over as general manager in 2005.
Packers director of player personnel, Brian Gutekunst, is still a strong candidate for the 49ers GM position and some believe he is the front runner to replace the fired Trent Baalke.
