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.
"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).
