Ray Lewis Agrees To Deal To Join ESPN
According to Sports Illustrateds Richard Deitsch, the Ravens linebacker will join ESPNs herd of former players as an analyst. Deitsch reports Lewis will sign a multi-year deal, with a significant role on ESPNs Monday Night Countdown. An ESPN spokesman declined comment.
Lewis ability to captivate an audience (whether its a locker room or folks sitting in recliners) is legendary, and he had plenty of suitors.
His representatives met with several of the NFL broadcast networks during the season, and one of the things that drew him to ESPN was the flexibility to attend his sons games at the University of Miami on fall Saturdays, rather than prepping for Sunday shows on other networks.
