ack Saquon Barkley to a fou

The Cleveland Browns’ roster still needs major work. Their front office is starting to shape up.

New general manager John Dorsey tapped into his NFL connections to improve the winless Browns Kevin White Jersey , adding former Green Bay executives Eliot Wolf and Alonzo Highsmith on Wednesday in the club’s first major moves in a significant offseason.

Dorsey played linebacker for the Packers and spent time working in the club’s front office with Wolf and Highsmith, two highly regarded talent evaluators with solid reputations.

The 35-year-old Wolf, who is considered a rising star in the league, will serve as Dorsey’s assistant while Highsmith, a former NFL running back, is the Browns’ vice president of player personnel.

”We’re lucky to add Alonzo and Eliot to our personnel staff,” said Dorsey, who was hired last month by owner Jimmy Haslam.

”Alonzo’s 25 years of experience in the National Football League as a player, scout and personnel executive give him a unique perspective when it comes to evaluating talent and building a team.

”Alonzo and I share the same passion for this great game of football. We are going to set out to find talented football players that possess that same passion for the game.

”Eliot has been a fine executive in this league for some time now. It’s been great to watch him grow up around this league when I was with him in Green Bay and from afar for the last five-plus years. He’s been a big reason for the consistent success the Packers have experienced over the last decade.”

Wolf spent 14 seasons with the Packers, working as the club’s director of football operations for the past two. He recently interviewed for the Green Bay GM job that went to Brian Gutekunst and Wolf was reportedly offered a spot to work in Oakland with Raiders’ GM Reggie McKenzie. Dorsey Daryl Johnston Jersey , McKenzie and Wolf all worked together in Green Bay.

But the son of Hall of Fame executive Ron Wolf is instead joining the Browns, still crawling from the wreckage of a 0-16 season while preparing for a draft in which they’ll have the No. 1 overall pick and four in the top 35.

”I really like the direction of where leadership is headed,” Wolf 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.”

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.

”This is going to be an exciting challenge,” Highsmith said. ”It’s great to reunite with John Dorsey. He is someone I’ve looked up to and has always been a mentor to me. We had great success together in Green Bay and we both understand the hard work it takes to create a winning environment.

”I’m grateful to have the opportunity to be part of something special. 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.”

Dorsey’s hiring of Wolf and Highsmith is a return to a more ”traditional” football model for Cleveland’s front office, which emphasized analytics in two failed seasons under fired vice president of football operations Sashi Brown.

Dorsey has also brought in former co-workers in Kansas City, adding Jimmy Noel as assistant director of pro scouting, Matt Donahoe as a scout and Dan Zegers as personnel coordinator.

All three worked with the Chiefs under Dorsey, who was surprisingly let go by the team in June after four seasons.

The Browns also said Ken Kovash, a vice president of player personnel the past two seasons Ronald Leary Jersey , will transition to a role in the club’s strategy department under Paul DePodesta.

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

The New York Giants have signed 2018 first round pick running back Saquon Barkley to a four-year deal worth $31.2 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.The #Giants have agreed to terms with first-round RB Saquon Barkley on his four-year, fully guaranteed contract worth $31.2M, source says. He has a $20.76M signing bonus with $15M paid out immediately 鈥?the most in several years. He gets the rest by October. Rookies report today.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) July 22, 2018Barkley, whom many consider the best running back prospect ever, lands one of the many big paydays that he will get in what should be an illustrious career. The 21-year-old already fulfilled the promise of buying his parents a new house, which he completed in June.Many expected the Giants to use the second overall pick on a quarterback to replace the 37-year-old Eli Manning Carlos Dunlap Jerse , who performed well below expectations in 2017. Even though signal-caller talents such as Sam Darnold,聽Josh Allen and Josh Rosen were available, the Giants simply couldn't pass up on Barkley, the once-in-a-lifetime running back prospect.Barkley played three years for Penn State, rushing for over 1,000 yards in each season while totaling 43 rushing touchdowns. Barkley was a 2017 Consensus All-American and two-time Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, winning the award in 2016 and 2017.A year after qualifying for the postseason, the Giants fell apart in 2017 and won just three games. Head coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese were fired, and replaced by Pat Shurmur and Dave Gettleman, respectively. With healthy wide receivers Telvin Smith Jersey , Barkley and the marquee free agent signing of offensive tackle Nate Solder, there is optimism among Giants fans that a turnaround could be in order.The Giants haven't had an elite running back since Tiki Barber, who played with the team from 1997-2006. Now that they have a game-changer in Barkley, the Giants can rely less on Eli's arm, and try to run a much more balanced offense.Barkley signed his first NFL contract with the Giants, but we can only imagine what the next deal will look like if he lives up to expectations as a rare gem of a running back..
