NEW YORK (AP) -Former New York Giants general manager Ernie Accorsi has been hired as a consultant to the NFL and will co-chair a new general managers advisory committee.
NFL executive vice president Ray Anderson said Monday that Accorsi will focus on assisting the league in monitoring compliance with rules and policies, and achieving better communication with senior club football personnel.
Accorsi retired from the Giants after the 2006 season following a 35-year NFL career, the last 14 with the Giants, including nine as general manager. He also served as general manager of the Cleveland Browns (1985-92) and Baltimore Colts (1982-83).
The new advisory committee will provide advice on protecting and supporting the integrity of the game, expanded use of technology, player development and scouting opportunities, and ways to improve the Pro Bowl, Scouting Combine, NFL Draft and preseason.
Anderson will co-chair the new general managers committee with Accorsi.
The committee also will include Jerry Angelo (Chicago Bears), Kevin Colbert (Pittsburgh Steelers), Rod Graves (Arizona Cardinals), James Harris (Jacksonville Jaguars), Tom Heckert (Philadelphia Eagles), Marty Hurney (Carolina Panthers), Mickey Loomis (New Orleans Saints), Carl Peterson (Kansas City Chiefs), Jerry Reese (Giants), Tim Ruskell (Seattle Seahawks), Rick Smith (Houston Texans) and Mike Tannenbaum (New York Jets).
