Charles Way named NFL’s head of player development


For the last 14 years, former fullback Charles Way helped Giants players think about the future.

Now he gets to work for all 32 teams.

The NFL announced that Way was named the head league’s player engagement department. He replaces Troy Vincent, who was promoted to executive vice president of football operations.

Way has spent the last 14 years in player development with the Giants, where he starred as a bruising runner.

The league’s release says Way will “work closely with NFL clubs, coaches and players to ensure that these league programs are both effective and fully utilized.”

Maybe he can start by encouraging the Redskins to use their programs. This week, former Redskins director of player development Phillip Daniels bemoaned his lack of support during his one year in that job, saying the team never gave him the budget or access necessary to make the job meaningful.

    “One” Way got that nickname by always running forward, no matter how many guys were in front of him. Good to see him going forward in the league’s front office.

    Hopefully, Way can convince players that guns, alcohol, and assaulting others are just as detrimental to a player’s future as concussions, body injuries, or bad money management.

    When you shoot yourself in the leg at a nightclub and need a doctor on the sly, Charlie Way is the man to call…

    Another disaster for my Giants. Charles Way kept Giants out of jail. He showed them how to conduct themselves. Luke Petitgout could have used Way’s support.
