ESPN is branching out when it comes to its talent.
The worldwide leader tapped Eli Apple's mom Annie for a new contributor role, and she happily obliged.
"Annie caught our attention during the NFL Draft and when we met with her in-person at ESPN we were blown away by her relatability, her sense of humor and just how unafraid she is to speak her mind," an ESPN coordinator said. "Annie brings a very unique perspective as the mother of a current NFL player and as a fan, and we look forward to exploring a variety of different story ideas with her on Sunday NFL Countdown."
This is sure to liven up the show this fall. Annie even tweeted about her excitement.
