According to a report by Alex Marvez of FOX Sports Tuesday night, the Cleveland Browns have added two more people to their staff: Jimmy Raye as senior offensive assistant and George DeLeone as assistant offensive line coach. Both positions are new for the Browns' staff, compared to last season.

Raye has a ton of NFL experience -- at 67 years old, he has been coaching in the league for the past 37 years. Get this for a resume: Raye has been an offensive coordinator for seven different teams, including the Rams, Buccaneers, Patriots, Chiefs, Redskins, Raiders, and 49ers. He was the 49ers' offensive coordinator from 2009-2010, but over the past two seasons, he has been a senior offensive assistant with the Buccaneers.

DeLeone is also up there in age at 65 years old. He has coached in college during most of his 44-year coaching career, except for when he was the Chargers' offensive line coach in 1997 and the Dolphins' tight ends coach from 2008-2010. He was the offensive coordinator for the University of Connecticut over the past three years. Both guys can serve as elder offensive minds to help a youthful offensive coordinator in Kyle Shanahan.
