The Bears on Tuesday interviewed Eliot Wolf for their general manager position.

Wolf has spent the past 18 seasons working in NFL personnel departments, including the first 14 in several different capacities with the Packers. In Green Bay, he served as a pro personnel assistant (2004-08), assistant director of pro personnel (2008-11), assistant director of player personnel (2011-12), director of pro personnel (2012-15), director of player personnel (2015-16) and director of football operations (2016-17).

Wolf left the Packers to become Browns general manager in 2018-19 and is now in his second season as a front office consultant with the Patriots.
