ESPN Announces Addition Of Schefter

As we reported so long ago that we can’t even remember without researching it and I’m feeling characteristically lazy right now so I won’t, Adam Schefter is joining ESPN. The network announced the move this morning. He officially will start with ESPN in August, after the expiration of his NFL Network deal. Schefter will appear on SportsCenter, NFL Live, Sunday NFL Countdown, Monday Night Countdown, ESPNEWS,, ESPN Radio, and the various and sundry other ESPN platforms. “The name ESPN speaks for itself. Its reputation stands alone,” Schefter said. “I watched ESPN growing up, so to be a part of the programming that every football fan watches, and really has always watched, and to be a part of such a talented group of people, it’s surreal to me. It feels like I’m a late addition to the Pro Bowl. I’m flattered, honored, humbled -- and I can’t wait to get to work.” We’ve yet to confirm Ed Werder’s report that ESPN gave Schefter a deadline to accept its offer. (Sorry, we couldn’t resist.)
