George Kokinis officially joins Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens officially named George Kokinis a senior personnel assistant, the team announced Tuesday.

The move has been speculated for months after Kokinis was fired by the Cleveland Browns as general manager. Once the Browns reached a grievance settlement, it paved the way for Baltimore to re-hire Kokinis, who worked closely with Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome in Baltimore/Cleveland for 18 seasons.

Also on the Baltimore front, ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the team is close to signing former Cincinnati Bengals kicker Shayne Graham, who is an unrestricted free agent.
