In a move that could signal more changes ahead for ESPN’s “Sunday NFL Countdown,” The New York Post reports that Charles Woodson is off the show.
“Woodson, the Heisman Trophy winner, Super Bowl champion and future Hall of Famer, never really took off on the show, which has been hosted by Sam Ponder the past two years,” The Post reports.
Woodson, who has been with ESPN for three years, confirmed his exit from the network on his Instagram account. Woodson joined the network soon after retiring from football.
“The other main analysts on the ‘Sunday Countdown’ set have been ex-Jets coach Rex Ryan, former Pro Bowl quarterback Matt Hasselbeck and Hall of Famer Randy Moss,” The Post notes. “The show has struggled to find its footing following the forced departure of Chris Berman two years ago. Ponder replaced Berman and struggled her first season.”
