    Ron Wolf Quits Cleveland

    Yet again the off-season decision making to go with Rick is vindicated. Wolf has jumped off the Browns bandwagon. Now just look at how bad we would have looked if Wolf had quit on us the way he has on Cleveland.

    Ron Wolf quits

    The Beacon Journal reports Ron Wolf's tenure with the Browns is over. Wolf let the Browns know late last week that he would no longer work with the team in light of the resignation of team president Carmen Policy, a source close to the situation said Monday. ``He's out of there,'' the source said. ``He signed up to work with Carmen, and now, Carmen isn't involved.'' Wolf, who was hired as a part-time ``personnel specialist,'' will not be involved with the Browns' draft, nor will he be in Berea for the minicamp. His time with the Browns lasted a little more than two months. The source stressed that there is no rift or disagreement between HC Butch Davis and Wolf. It is just a desire for Wolf to move on now that the person he agreed to work for and communicated with is no longer going to be with the team



    I guess we didn't miss the GM we wanted after all. I'm very happy with what Spielman is doing with this team. I like his plan.

    He quit because Carmen Policy stepped down as president. He signed on because he wanted to work with Policy and now he's no longer there, and Butch Davis never made effort one to cozy up with Wolf. In fact, no move the Browns have made so far in the offseason reflects any of Wolf's recommendations.

    Hiring him as a consultant still would have been a good move if he was willing to work at it.

    It seems that no one is getting this story right. Wolf was never going to agree to a GM job. He was just a CONSULTANT.

    That's it. The Browns did not consult with him when they went after Garcia.

    Wolf continued to work from his home in Maryland and continued to enjoy vacationing in Florida.

    The Media got the whole Wolf story wrong in connection to the Dolphins. They won't admit it or even recognize it. But they did use it to bash the Dolphins.

    Wolf was just a consultant. We got some good advice out of him during our brief meetings. He really liked what he saw in AJ Feeley. Spielman took a closer look and liked him also.

    The fact that Wolf was never highly used as a respected resource in Cleveland reflects the status of his job there. He did the right thing and retired from his consulting position. They were not heeding any of his recommendations anyway.

    Yeah Butch went like on record saying they haven't done anything Wolf suggested...though I do hear they made a late push for Feeley which is why we jumped on him.

    Re: Re: Ron Wolf quits

    Uhh to make both units of the team younger and better. The FA signings reflect this of course.
