Wolf might use them to get some more money.
But I think he goes to the Browns. Dorsey may lure him by promising to let him get more involved with The Draft. With all those draft picks and a team that's already on the upswing (1 more win than last year!) he likely views that as the best path to the GM position.
Do what no one else has been able to do: Rebuild the Browns.
It may be an impossible task but it's probably better than being buried in whatever power struggle is bound to come up between John Gruden and Reggie McKenzie.
You use the browns as leverage to get more money from another team. You don't use other teams as leverage to get hired by the browns.
Nah, that's how you get railroaded.
If you want a promotion, you go learn the job responsibilities for the promotion, so when it comes time, you can basically say you're already doing the job.
In GB Wolf would've been sidelined as more of the same, no growth. Gutekunst with sole power over the roster, Ball on contracts, and Murphy working with the coach. Wolf had no room for actually learning how to GM.
OAK would be more of the same. Reggie McKenzie would probably have an iron hold on his draft/FA prospects, with John Gruden starting crap to get the players he wants drafted, with no room for Elliot Wolf to provide his input.
I'm sure Dorsey promised to actually give him real responsibility.
