Odds & Ends…the realignment of the Ravens’ front office positions Eric DeCosta to be the team’s next GM once Ozzie steps down. DeCosta is now the Director of Player Personnel with direct reports of Vince Newsome (Pro Personnel) and Joe Hortiz (College Personnel). DeCosta will now become more involved with contracts, the cap, and other non-collegiate personnel decisions and for all intents and purposes, he is the Assistant GM. George Kokinis’ departure, an executive who was viewed by some as DeCosta’s equal within the organization, helped pave the way for the promotions…Greg Mattison takes over for Rex Ryan as the defensive coordinator. Players and coaches don’t expect any measurable drop off as a result of defensive scheming or lack thereof given the departure of “Mad Scientist” Ryan. There does seem to be a growing consensus though that the defense will be less exotic, more basic yet hardly less aggressive. If you recall, the Ravens record setting defense from 2000 employed very traditional scheming and concepts…Word is that Cam Cameron has shared with insiders that Ray Rice was underutilized in the post season, particularly against the Steelers.
