Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott has been added to the NFL Competition Committee, the NFL announced Thursday.

The Competition Committee reviews all competitive aspects of the game, including playing rules, roster regulations, technology, game-day operations and player protection, among other aspects.

"First and foremost, it's a great honor to be thought of in this light," McDermott said in a statement regarding the announcement. "It comes with great responsibility to continue to grow this game that so many others have done for so many years."

In addition to McDermott, Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay was added to the committee.

The Competition Committee uses feedback provided from surveys given to each of the 32 NFL clubs to prepare agenda items, discuss the feedback and review information with league medical advisors, members of the coaches' and general managers' subcommittees and NFL Players Association representatives, according to the NFL Operations website.

At the league's annual meeting, the Competition Committee presents a report of its findings to the 32 owners, who then vote on any proposed new rules and rules changes.
