Elizabeth Blackburn named to NFL international committee


The impact Elizabeth Blackburn has had on the Cincinnati Bengals can’t be understated. Blackburn’s handprints are all around the rebirth we’ve seen from the team.

The improved gameday experience at Paycor Stadium, the brand new uniforms and the seemingly rapid modernization of the franchise can all be traced back to her and her growing role inside the front office.

Fans in Cincinnati appreciate her, and it appears the NFL does too.

Within the wake of the Miami Dolphins tampering scandal, Dolphins owner was faraway from the NFL’s international community. Recently, we learned Blackburn was chosen to be his alternative in that seat, per Ben Fischer.

At just 29 years old, Blackburn becomes considered one of the fastest growing young NFL executives within the league of any gender, but is constant the trend of ladies being in positions across the NFL.

The Bengals front office is fairly low-key. You’ll hear the team assign roles to front office members, but it surely looks like they do a far more vital position than the title would lead on. Duke Tobin, for instance, is the director of player personnel, but we all know he is actually the final manager. Blackburn is listed because the Director of Strategy & Engagement and while she has excelled in those areas, it is evident her position within the front office is larger than that. With how well things have gone in her arrival, expect to see it grow even larger.

Congratulations, Liz! Who Dey Nation is glad to have you ever!
