ESPN is on the verge of adding Ray Lewis to its talent lineup.

Multiple sources told SI.com the Ravens linebacker is close to signing a multi-year contract with the network. At ESPN, Lewis is expected to have a significant role on the network's Monday Night Countdown program. As with most ESPN NFL talent, Lewis would also be featured on multiple platforms, including ESPN Radio.

I think that would be a lot of fun. He's an entertaining character, and he also has one of the highest football IQ's ever.

Wish he would join NFLN, but as long as I get to hear him talk football, that's fine by me.

I too agree that Ray would have been better suited for NFLN (with Irvin, Faulk, etc), but it was a good hire by ESPN nevertheless.

Bill Parcells nearly did it. I know there were a few times where Stuart Scott was about to say something dumb, then Scott's lazy eye caught Parcells glaring at him, so he shut up.

Ray Lewis vs Skip Bayless on First Take. Ray Ray gets SO angry with the Tebow love that he takes Bayless and goes all Clowney on him.

Would have rather he went to NFLN. But as Ray goes I go so I'm a ESPN man now.

Hope eventually he is in the Ravens front office.

I only watch ESPN for Monday night football, and on draft-day. So I look forward to seeing Ray then, but I was really hoping he would join NFLN, which I watch almost everyday.

I remember Parcells doing that Laughing . And I like that last bit regarding Clowney, ET.

The amounts of money I would pay to watch Ray just take out Skip Bayless when Bayless makes him angry is unimaginable.

That Clowney hit is the reason my son will never play football. There are some humans who have no other purpose other than to maim other human beings. Clowney is that guy for this generation.

Onto this story - I can see a weekly show with Ray Lewis, Herm Edwards, Brian Dawkins and Suzy Kolber being entertaining. Just a weekly recap of all the big hits from the week, and whether or not the NFL is going to fine someone. Kolber would be there to keep the peace, but the reality is that she will be ignored about two minutes into the show - it would be Ray, Herm and Dawk, all screaming and chest bumping and yelling and dancing for 30 minutes.

I'd watch that 30 minutes.
