is leaving the league after 14 years to head consumer products at Las Vegas-based UFC. Bleczinski has been associated with many of the recent women's apparel initiatives from NFL licensees, including female silhouettes from the Iikes of Nike and VF’s Majestic brand, "Wellies" and other team-logoed footwear from Cuce Shoes, and pop-up "style lounges" showcasing licensed products for distaff fans outside of NFL stadia. An NFL spokesperson said the league has not yet named a replacement. A farewell gathering is planned for Tuesday at the league offices in N.Y.
