With the offseason in full swing for many teams, New England Patriots personnel are being tabbed for interviews for several positions. On Wednesday, the Chicago Bears requested to interview Patriots scouting consultant Eliot Wolf to fill their vacancy as general manager.
Wolf is in his second year at the position. With New England taking a more hands-on approach to the 2021 draft, they selected quarterback Mac Jones and running back Rhamondre Stevenson among others. Wolf was mentioned as being one of the key individuals to help in this year’s draft.
Prior to position with the Patriots, he worked with the Green Bay Packers in their personnel department. He was there for a number of years, with his tenure lasting from 2004-2017. Football personnel positions run in his family. His father is former Green Bay GM Ron Wolf.
Bears requested permission to interview Patriots’ director of scouting Eliot Wolf for their GM job, per source.
