Charles Way leaves Giants for role in NFL office

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

Former player has worked in Giants' front office since retiring after 1999 season.

Charles Way, a Giants player and executive since 1995, is leaving the organization to join the NFL office as the head of its Player Engagement Department. Way has been the Giants' director of player development since 2000, the year after his retirement as a player. In his new position with the NFL, Way will oversee the programs and services that are provided to all NFL teams and players.

"This is a tremendous opportunity to continue to advance the initiatives of the Player Engagement Department," says Way. "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."

With the Giants, Way developed and managed off-field player programs, rookie orientations and player counseling and advised the players regarding career planning, educational opportunities, and team and professional requirements. He also coordinated player activities in support of the public relations and community relations programs and helped coach the team's running backs and fullbacks. Way was also instrumental in devising new programs for the team, including leadership training, professional development and team building. He recently participated in the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace at the United Nations on the NFL's impact on local communities around the world.

As a player, Way was the Giants' fullback from 1995-1999. He gained 1,356 yards rushing on 337 carries, a career average of 4.0 yards per carry. He also caught 118 passes. His career was cut short by knee injuries.
