Will oversee growth, integrity of the game
Tuesday, June 17, 2008
From wire dispatches

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 that includes Kevin Colbert, the Steelers' director of football operations.

NFL executive vice president Ray Anderson said yesterday 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.
