Former New York Giants fullback Charles Way has been named head of the NFL player engagement department.
Way spent the past 14 years as the Giants' director of player programs.
Way replaces Troy Vincent, who was promoted earlier this year to NFL executive vice president of football operations. Way played for the Giants from 1995 to 1999, also serving as the team’s player representative to the NFL Players Association. The following year he began his career in player support services.
In his new role, Way will oversee support programs and services for players and their families.
“This is a tremendous opportunity to continue to advance the initiatives of the player engagement department,” Way said. “I am thankful to Ernie Accorsi for envisioning the importance and significance of the role I have had with the Giants and grateful for the support of John Mara, Steve Tisch, Jerry Reese and Tom Coughlin in implementing and developing the programs we have instituted. We will continue to build on the foundation of NFL Player Engagement that has been established over the past 25 years.”
