Damien Woody Is The Latest ESPN NFL Hire

Former NFL offensive lineman Damien Woody is the latest to join ESPN as an NFL analyst.

The 12-year veteran, who announced his retirement from the league Friday, will appear on SportsCenter, NFL Live, First Take and ESPNEWS.

“I’m grateful for all the support over the years from my family, my fans, and the league,” said Woody. “I’m excited to start the next phase of my career, moving from the NFL family to the ESPN family, and I feel blessed to continue to be a part of the game of football.”

Woody will make his ESPN debut next month.

Earlier this week, ESPN hired former coach Eric Mangini and ex-defensive end Hugh Douglas.
