Somehow, I missed this yesterday, but nevertheless, former Vikings All-Pro wide receiver Cris Carter is joining tWWL as a football analyst for their numerous platforms. I personally think Carter is a good addition and will fit in well, as he is more calm than his boisterous colleagues. Some say this is a reaction to the recent release of Sean Salisbury. Methinks this comes with the thinking that Keyshawn is more serious about returning to the NFL than he’s let on.
From the ESPN release:
“Cris is a Hall of Fame caliber player and a tremendous analyst, and we are thrilled to welcome him to ESPN where he will give fans a true insider’s perspective on the NFL year-round across our various platforms,” said Norby Williamson, ESPN executive vice president, production.
Added Carter: “I am very excited to be joining ESPN and their talented group of NFL analysts. I have always felt connected to ESPN since they gave me an opportunity to do some television work during my playing career, and even while working at HBO, I have always admired and respected how they do things. I look forward to getting started in April.”
