Default Adam Shefter to ESPN

Sources: Schefter To ESPN
Posted by Mike Florio on April 15, 2009, 8:39 p.m. EDT
Several league and industry sources have told us that Adam Schefter, who still is under contract with NFL Network, will join ESPN later this year.

Schefter is still under contract with NFLN, but he has not appeared on the air since early March. Schefter told Neil Best of Newsday on March 23 that he remains under contract with NFL Network until the middle of August.

It remains to be seen whether and to what extent Schefter’s arrival affects the current NFL insider lineup at ESPN. At a minimum, it could make for a spirited-to-the-point-of-awkward in-house rivalry between Schefter, Chris Mortensen, John Clayton, Michael Smith, and the army of beat-writers-turned-bloggers who compete to break news.

UPDATE: We’ve heard it from yet another source. However, ESPN Bill Hofheimer told us via e-mail Wednesday night that he cannot confirm the report.

To be fair, he merely provided further confirmation. We've ALWAYS known what a joke WPI was.

It'll be interesting to see how Schefter and Mort work together after their battle when they disagreed about Ratty going to KC

Yeah, those sources magically appeared when the NFLN hired him. No chance the NFLN made him one of their first hires because of how good he is at what he does.

Go back to your basement and your lame ass attempts to defend Athan.

Schefter said Pioli wasn't going to be a Kansas City Chief.

Ooops. Who's the fraud?

The league is like the mafia these days. They won't forget the treachery of Adam Schefter.

Schefter is simply the best in the business right now. He's the Michael Jordan of sports journalism.

Anyway, the Haley thing was PURE speculation. No source was used at all. The Shanny thing is completely different.

You fail to understand the difference.

Collinsworth wasn't reporting anything. He was just talking out of his ass.

Harry had a source. There was no opinion involved.
Harry got his source from you frauds on the Shanny going to KC rumors. Collinsworth as it turns out was right, Haley is the HC of the queefs.

Of course none of you paid attention to it then.

Now that's leaking out there to a greater audience I thought I'd bounce it off you guys again and see how you're dealing with it.
Quote:
That may not be a problem in Kansas City. Per an NFL source, Shanahan has made it known through “third-party channels” that he’s interested in the Chiefs’ job but would not require total control of football operations as he did in Denver. Can you imagine the perfect pairing of Shanahan and a general manager who could pluck the right defensive talent from the draft, while assisting in the search for the right defensive coordinator?

"Third party" channels bob?

WPI just throws crap on the wall and sees if it sticks, if not then you move on to the next "scoop". WPI is a fraud, and has been exposed as such. You don't get a nickname like Nick "The Erroneous One" Athan for no reason...Schefter has been right way more than he has been wrong, which is rarely the case.

Hey, all I'm saying is Adam Schefter is wrong, too.

And we were right on the same issue.

And we never reported the deal was done.

Anyone who believes that Schefter is more than an early leak for the NFL corporate brass, until he goes to ESPN, is an idiot.

Well, I'm happy ... my stupid cable doesn't have NFLN, and I can't stand that John Clayton ... he never says anything interesting. Ever.

Schefter will be a GREAT addition ... but I wish Mike Mayock would come too.

(cue piano music)

I wasn't looking for anyone when you caught my eye
I was content just to be alone then you took me by surprise
I told myself better take your time
But there's no holding back this love of mine

It's a done deal it's too late to change the way that I feel
My heart is falling head over heels oh baby it's a done deal

I've been down this old road before and got left on a dead end street
I've been around enough to know it's best to look before you leap
I know that would be the thing to do
But my mind's made up and it's set on you

It's a done deal...

When love grabs you and won't let go there's nothing you can do about it
Your love's got a hold on me and I just can't live without it

Oh it's a done deal...
Yeah it's a done deal...
