ESPN is adding an NFL veteran who is generally considered to be one of the best wide receivers in history to its football coverage. Randy Moss, a six-time Pro Bowler, will be a part of the sports network’s “Sunday NFL Countdown” and “Monday Night Countdown” programs.
Moss retired in 2012 after 14 seasons in the NFL, where he played with the Minnesota Vikings (1998-2004, 2010), Oakland Raiders (2005-06), New England Patriots (2007-10), Tennessee Titans (2010) and San Francisco 49ers (2012).
Moss will do analysis for the ESPN shows from the site of each week’s “Monday Night Football” game. He will also be a part of ESPN’s annual Super Bowl week coverage.
In a statement, Seth Markman, senior coordinating producer for ESPN’s NFL studio shows, said: “As a player and now as an analyst, Randy has always been candid, direct and compelling; when he talks about football and other topics, you are instantly drawn to what he has to say. With Matthew Hasselbeck, Charles Woodson and now Randy joining ESPN this offseason, we have added three dynamic, new voices to our studio team, all of whom are widely known and respected among football fans.”
Moss has been working as an NFL analyst for Fox Sports for the past three years.
