Media > Jerry Rice To Join ESPN As TV Analyst

 

~ Adding the greatest wide receiver to ever play the game to it’s coverage of the NFL is a pretty good idea. Jerry Rice will be joining ESPN as an analyst and will be featured on NFL Live, SportsCenter, and their Audibles show as reported by Sports Illustrated.

Rice has been fine tuning his tv skills by doing analyst work for the BBC television’s coverage of the NFL and also co-hosted Sports Sunday on NBC Bay Area after San Francisco 49ers games during the 2010 season.

It remains to be seen how Rice will do on the national stage as an analyst. I suppose Rice can’t do any worst than Emmitt Smith did when he was at ESPN. While Smith was a great running back, his time as an analyst though … not so much. It’s not for everyone.

Rice isn’t the only new face that will be on ESPN for the upcoming 2011 season. Ex-players Hugh Douglas, Damien Woody, and former Browns and Jets coach Eric Mangini have also been added to the mix.
