NEW YORK, N. Chris Young Jersey .Y. - Former Minnesota Vikings and Baltimore Ravens centre Matt Birk was hired Thursday by the NFL as director of football development. The six-time Pro Bowl player and 2011 Walter Payton Award winner as the leagues man of the year spent the 2013 season as an NFL-NFLPA appeals officer. In his new role, Birk will be involved in administration of game-day operations, oversee the further development of the scouting combine and regional combines, as well as the Senior Bowl and East-West Shrine game for college players. "Im very excited to begin this next chapter of my football career," Birk said. "Its a real honour for me to be entrusted with developing the game in so many different ways." Birk becomes the eighth former player to take a job at the NFL executive offices, joining Merton Hanks, Dwight Hollier, Patrick Kerney, James Thrash, David Tyree, Troy Vincent and Charles Way. Vincent is the leagues top executive for football operations. "Matts experience as a terrific NFL player, a model citizen in his community and a reputation as a forward-thinking leader make him ideally suited for this role," Vincent said. Neil Walker Jersey . Braves reliever David Carpenter was also fined for throwing at Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson in the same game, which featured several ejections, including Colorado manager Walt Weiss. Zack Wheeler Mets Jersey . So they rushed to re-sign the first baseman who general manager Ben Cherington described Friday as "a unique player." The World Series champions finalized a $32 million, two-year agreement Thursday with the slugging former catcher who turned into a surprisingly good defender.After steam-rolling the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl, it should come as no surprise that the Seattle Seahawks open the 2014 season on top of the NFL Power Rankings. The Seahawks have a devastating defence and could be at an even higher level than last season if they can somehow keep wide receiver Percy Harvin healthy. Its never easy to repeat a championship in pro sports, but the Seahawks will at least have a viable chance to go back-to-back this season. Even though they were blown out in the Super Bowl, the Broncos are still ranked second. Adding DeMarcus Ware and Aqib Talib should provide more playmakers on the defensive side of the ball, which is the big question for the Broncos. Most of the top contenders, though, are in the NFC. Behind the Brooncos, the New Orleans Saints, San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles are teams that recorded double-digit wins last season and are viable challengers for the Seahawks and Broncos. Matt Harvey Mets Jersey. . Some of the teams making moves up, going into the season with higher expectations, include the Detroit Lions, who are in the Top 10, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who vaulted into the Top 20. At the other end of the spectrum, the Jacksonville Jaguars, St. Louis Rams and Oakland Raiders hold the bottom three spots, though there are several other teams that could easily slide into those dubious spots.
