Touchdown Reception: ESPN Hires Jerry Rice For NFL Coverage

SIGNAL CALLER: Former NFLer Kurt Warner has signed a multiyear extension to serve as an analyst exclusively for NFL Network. Warner will join the net's "NFL GameDay Morning" Sunday pregame show, "NFL Total Access" and "Thursday Night Football" on-location pregame, halftime and postgame shows this season. He will also continue to serve as an in-studio analyst for "NFL Total Access" (NFL Network). SI.com's Peter King wrote, "It'll be interesting to see more of Kurt Warner this fall. ... Warner can't lie. He's not always compelling, but he'll always tell the truth." King added, "He won't succumb to the macho talk about sucking it up and staying in the game when hurt. He'll side with players, particularly on head injuries, because that's one of the big reasons he left the game" (SI.com, 8/8).
