Packers VP Jason Wied Resigns After A Two Month Leave Of Absence

MORE MOVES: In Green Bay, Pete Dougherty noted Packers Dir of Football Operations Reggie McKenzie’s decision to leave the team to become the Raiders GM will “disrupt the stability that has marked the Green Bay Packers’ front office the last several years.” He had been with the Packers “since 1994, and as their lone director-football operations the last two years as General Manager Ted Thompson’s top personnel adviser.” The move leaves “a temporary void near the top of the Packers’ front office and raises questions about which scouts McKenzie might take with him to the Raiders.” Several media reports have “mentioned Eliot Wolf, who is a Packers assistant director of player personnel, but there’s a good chance Thompson will promote Wolf to replace McKenzie.” A source said that McKenzie was believed to be “among or possibly even the highest-paid personnel executive in the league who’s not a GM, with a salary estimated between $500,000 and $700,000” (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE, 1/7).
