The latest on potential Patriots front office departures: NFL teams with vacant coaching and front office positions continue to search for new hires.

Included in the current round of rumors are several Patriots. Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and director of player personnel Dave Ziegler are reportedly a potential tandem hire for the Raiders.

And Ziegler isn’t the team’s only member of the front office to be linked elsewhere.

According to NFL reporters Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo, Eliot Wolf, who is currently a Patriots front office consultant, is set for a second interview with the Bears for the team’s general manager position.

Wolf, who has worked in New England since 2020, has a long history with one of Chicago’s main rivals. He worked for the Packers in a series of roles from 2004-2017, before working as assistant general manager of the Browns from 2018-2019.

Wolf’s father, Ron, was Green Bay’s general manager from 1991-2000.
