The Chicago Bears are turning their begging to the New England Patriots for a moment, putting in a request to interview Patriots senior consultant Eliot Wolf.
Chicago is one of two franchises searching for a new general manager, along with the New York Giants.
Wolf is the son of longtime former Green Bay Packers GM Ron Wolf, and Eliot Wolf worked in the Packers front office himself about 20 years ago. News of the Bears’ interest was first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
“In eight years with the team, Eliot worked his way into the director of pro personnel role, which he held for three years,” wrote Ely Allen of Pro Football Rumors. “In his last two seasons in Green Bay, he spent time in the roles of director of player personnel and director of football operations.”
Wolf left Green Bay to become assistant GM with the Cleveland Browns before heading to the Patriots. While he has plenty of experience in front offices, he’s actually never been the head of a team. But hey, the bloodlines are there.
The Bears are aiming to replace former GM Ryan Pace, whom they fired at the end of the season. Like the Giants, Chicago is casting a wide net in its search.
