Rams coach Jeff Fisher said he was taking a “leave of absence” from the competition committee, but they may have filled the job on him.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians and Broncos executive John Elway have been added to the committee, which sets the agenda for rules changes.

Fisher said at the Scouting Combine that he wanted to step away from the committee to focus on his team’s move to Los Angeles. Committee chairman Rich McKay had been suspended after the Falcons’ fake crowd-noise scandal, but he had been reinstated a year ago.

It’s unclear if there was another departure to the committee to make room for the new guys.

The other members of the committee include Giants owner John Mara, Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones, Packers president Mark Murphy, Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome, Texans G.M. Rick Smith, Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis and Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin.
