The NFL has hired former Arizona Cardinals general manager Rod Graves as senior vice president of football administration and club services. Graves will oversee all club and game-related initiatives related to the NFL competition committee, general managers and head coaches.  Graves is responsible for the strategic development of coaching, scouting, officiating, and front office personnel, international players and coaches, the combine series, college relations and the player pipeline. “I am very much looking forward to beginning this next chapter of my football career,” Graves said.  “It’s exciting to have the opportunity to make a positive impact on our game in so many different ways.” Graves spent the past two seasons with the New York Jets as senior director of football administration. “Rod brings vast football knowledge and club experience to football operations,” NFL executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent said. "Rod is a man of high integrity and his experience over the past 30 years is informed by extensive experience in many areas of our sport.  We look forward to his insight as he contributes to developing our great game.” Follow me on Twitter: @RavensInsider Aaron Wilson covers the Ravens for The Baltimore Sun
