Former Titans executive gets job with NFL office

Former Tennessee Titans executive vice president Mike Reinfeldt is one of three former players hired by the league office, the NFL announced Tuesday.

Reinfeldt, Hall of Fame linebacker Mike Singletary, and Jimmy Raye II all were named senior advisors to Troy Vincent, also a former player and the NFL’s current executive vice president of football operations.

“I’m very excited to be joining the NFL office,” Reinfeldt said in a release to announce the moves. “I want to thank Commissioner [Roger] Goodell and Troy Vincent for this opportunity. I look forward to contributing and assisting the league office and the clubs.”

According to the release, “Vincent will consult with his team of advisors on key aspects of football, including developing players and coaches, providing input on past, current and future initiatives, and serving as liaisons to NFL coaches and front office personnel.”

Bud Adams, the late owner and founder of the franchise, fired Reinfeldt immediately following the 2012 season.

A player with the Houston Oilers during the 1970s and 80s, Reinfeldt had been promoted to senior executive vice president/chief operating officer less than a year earlier. He joined the Titans’ front office in 2007, when he replaced Floyd Reese as general manager. He also worked with Green Bay and Seattle.
