New committee chairmen announced after several step aside

Several changes in leadership among the NFL's operational committees were announced to the league's 32 teams Thursday by Commissioner Roger Goodell. Much of the change stems from owners and high-ranking team officials stepping down from positions.

Goodell also announced the formation of the Health and Safety Advisory Committee, which will be chaired by San Francisco 49ers chairman John York and will include Dallas' Jerry Jones, Atlanta's Rich McKay, John Mara of the New York Giants and Green Bay's Mark Murphy.

Those named as chairmen of new committees are: Bob McNair (Finance), Wayne Weaver (Investment), Art Rooney (Stadium), Dean Spanos (Business Ventures), Katie Blackburn (Super Bowl Advisory), Clark Hunt (International), Mara (Management Council/Labor) and Jones (Hall of Fame).

"Our committee structure has been very important and beneficial to the NFL over the years," Goodell said in a statement. "It has allowed us to address and study complex issues in depth and present our clubs with comprehensive information and thoughtful recommendations."

Committee chairs who will continue in those roles include Robert Kraft (Broadcast), McKay (Competition), Arthur Blank (Audit and Compensation), Rita LeBlanc (Employee Benefits), Michael Bidwill (Stadium Security and Fan Conduct), Jones (NFL Network), Jonathan Kraft and Dan Snyder (Digital Media), Legislative (Jim Irsay) and Blackburn (Workplace Diversity).
