We all knew it was coming we just didn’t know exactly when. The two-time Super Bowl Champion Ray Lewis is now officially apart of the ESPN family. After winning his second championship, Lewis has a handful of gigs at the ESPN station.
“Ray is a tremendous addition to our NFL roster and he will have an immediate impact on our coverage,” said John Wildhack, ESPN executive vice president, production. “One of the most accomplished players in NFL history, fans will be drawn to his knowledge, experience and, of course, the passion he always exudes for the game.”
Every Monday, the future Hall of Famer will appear on Monday Night Football as an analysis alongside Stuart Scott, Steve Young, and former Ravens teammates Trent Dilfer. In addition Lewis will be featured on Sunday NFL Countdown, and will make a weekly appearance on ESPN Radio’s Mike and Mike in the Morning, starting August 1st. Lewis will also be participating in ESPN’s annual Super Bowl coverage.
“ESPN is such a big part of how fans watch and experience sports, especially the NFL, so I’m excited to join their team. I’m ready to bring the same level of passion to this next phase of my life as I brought to the field during my years as a player. I can’t wait to work with my new teammates, many of whom I’ve already known for years, said Ray Lewis.”
Ray Lewis has made a tremendous impact to the Ravens organization and the NFL. Now as he embarks on this new task adding more stock to his resume, I can’t wait to see Rev Ray every Sunday. If I can’t have him on the field, I will gladly take him on the sidelines.
