Troy Vincent joins league office


At one point, Troy Vincent was a candidate to be the executive director of the players’ union.

Now, Vincent has joined the league office.

The former Eagles cornerback was named vice president of player development for active players yesterday. He begins Monday.

He will oversee a number of support programs for players and their families, including the rookie symposium, conduct management program, and LifeSkills, and design new programs, the league said in announcing the hiring.

“I appreciate this opportunity to continue to be involved in the NFL working with active players and tomorrow’s NFL athletes,” Vincent said in a statement. “My goal is to assist the NFL in continuing to grow and remain the most respected, admired and successful sports league in the world ...

“My family and I owe so much to playing in the NFL, and I know my story is not unique. This is one way of giving back.”

Vincent will work primarily with players entering the league or early in their careers.

Said Adolpho Birch III, the NFL vice president of law and labor policy who oversees NFL Player Development: “Troy brings a unique perspective and impressive skill set to this position. As a former player and past NFL Players Association President with extensive experience in player development, he is an innovative thinker, excellent communicator and will be a champion for our services.”
