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.

Mike Krzyzewski Finally Chimes In On Jalen Rose

Just when you thought the Jalen Rose vs. Grant Hill story was dead, Mike Krzyzewski is ready to chime in on the situation.

“Obviously, that was a poor choice of words and very insulting to everyone here at Duke but especially, not just our African-American players, but any African-American students,” Krzyzewski said on The Waddle & Silvy Show on ESPN 1000 in Chicago Tuesday. “When you judge within a race, you start judging, like you put categories as to who you are. I think that’s just the wrong thing to do.”

As for the notion that none of the Fab Five would have ended up at Duke, Krzyzewski says that wasn’t the case. Read more

Mel Kiper Compares Cam Newton To Akili Smith

Most folks are split down the middle on Cam Newton‘s future in the NFL.

But nobody has compared him to former Oregon quarterback and one-year wonder Akili Smith … until now.

ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper did just that on Wednesday while hosting a conference call with the media.

“He was a one-year wonder. Akili Smith was a one-year wonder,” Kiper said.” “If you hit (on Newton), you could have a sensational quarterback for ten years. (But) if you miss, it sets you back three, four, five years.”

In case you need a refresher on how bad Smith was, the former No. 3 overall pick in the 1999 NFL Draft was 3-14 as a starting quarterback and his touchdown-to-interception was 5:13.

Jeez, Mel. Tell us how you really feel about Cam.
