Changes have been occurring more frequently at ESPN and the latest report has the network bringing in a former Minnesota Vikings wide receiver to work for them. Today, reports have been circulating that Randy Moss will be joining ESPN as one of the network’s NFL analysts.

This is not the first stint as an NFL analyst for Moss. He has spent the past three years working for Fox Sports as a contributor for their coverage of the NFL.

As a member of the Vikings, Moss set numerous team records. He provided the team’s fans with plenty of excitement whenever he stepped on the field (and played when he wanted to play).

The report also states that ESPN will be parting ways with another former Minnesota wide receiver. After almost nine years with the network, Cris Carter will no longer be working for ESPN.

During his time with ESPN, Carter certainly gave the network’s audience something to talk about. Not everything that Carter said was positive, but he was never afraid to speak his mind.

Many of the topics Carter spoke about came from the experiences he had while playing in the NFL for 16 seasons (13 with the Vikings). Carter was enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2013 and like Moss, he holds numerous Minnesota team records.

In related news, ESPN has also announced that Sean McDonough will be taking over the play-by-play duties for the network’s coverage of Monday Night Football. McDonough is replacing Mike Tirico, who has left ESPN to work for NBC.
