Former union presidents Troy Vincent and Trace Armstrong and lawyer DeMaurice Smith are the finalists to succeed Gene Upshaw as executive director of the NFL Players Association.
The three were chosen from five semifinalists by the union's search committee on Thursday, according to a person familiar with the search. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the individual is not authorized to release the information.
The new executive director will be chosen March 13-15 in Hawaii. He will succeed Gene Upshaw, who died last August of pancreatic cancer.
