The Patriots have formally named Eliot Wolf as their executive vice president of player personnel.  

Wolf was formally named as the Patriots' executive vice president of player personnel.  

According to the club, Wolf's responsibilities include overseeing the personnel department, managing the pay cap, and controlling the 53-man roster.  

Wolf was supposed to be in command of the Patriots' roster upon his hire in early February.   

While the club will not have a general manager title in the post-Bill Belichick era, Wolf's responsibilities will be similar.  

"As I have stated several times this offseason, the plan was to observe the working relationship and involvement of Eliot and Jerod (Mayo) and see how they managed our offseason personnel decisions,"  

said Patriots chairman and CEO Robert Kraft, according to the team's official website.   

Then, following the draft, we would formally initiate a process to establish the permanent organization of our personnel department.  

I've been impressed with Eliot's managerial style and experience, and I'm thrilled that he has decided to take on this new role."
