Report: Wolf withdraws from 49ers' GM race

Report: Wolf withdraws from 49ers' GM race

Executive Eliot Wolf has reportedly agreed to a new contract to remain with the Green Bay Packers and has pulled out of the running to become the 49ers’ next general manager.

Wolf’s decision to remain with the Packers, as first reported by USA Today’s Tom Pelissero, leaves the 49ers with three known candidates for the job to replace Trent Baalke as general manager.

The 49ers this week informed a handful of candidates they would not be given second interviews for the position. Wolf and Brian Gutekunst, also of Green Bay, George Paton of Minnesota and Arizona’s Terry McDonough remained under consideration for the job after the initial list was pared down.

The 49ers are expected to involve presumptive coach Kyle Shanahan in the process to name the next general manager. Shanahan, Atlanta's offensive coordintor, is prohibited from officially becoming the 49ers' next head coach until after the Falcons' season is over. The Falcons play the Packers on Sunday in the NFC Championship game.

Wolf, 32, is in his first season as Green Bay’s director of football operations after receiving a promotion after being denied an opportunity to interview with the Detroit Lions last year. The 49ers interviewed him Jan. 5, along with Gutekunst, the Packers’ director of player personnel. Wolf is the son Hall of Fame executive Ron Wolf.

Oakland Raiders officially apply for relocation to Las Vegas

Oakland Raiders officially apply for relocation to Las Vegas

The Oakland Raiders have applied for relocation to Las Vegas.

The long expected news was announced on Thursday morning by Clark County Commission chairman Steve Sisolak.

Raiders owner Mark Davis said on several occasions he was committed to moving his franchise to Las Vegas, especially after the Nevada state legislature approved $750 million in public funds for a $1.9 billion stadium project near the Las Vegas Strip.

The Raiders had to wait until after their season ended – the Raiders lost their playoff opener at Houston on Jan. 7 – to apply for relocation.

Their formal application has been submitted to the NFL, and must be approved by 24 owners. A vote could come in late March, at the spring NFL owners meetings.
