Tony Dungy will lead a new NFL player advisory forum that will meet with players about league policies, programs and issues that affect their lives on and off the field.
Those subjects will include player health and safety, personal conduct, game rules and procedures, career transition and player development.
Dungy is a special adviser to commissioner Roger Goodell. Dungy coached the Indianapolis Colts to the 2006 NFL title and retired after last season.
Goodell will attend the meetings, and union officials have been invited to attend. Pro Bowl players Kurt Warner, Ray Lewis and Brian Dawkins are among the players who will take part in the meetings.
