FOX Sports has poached another talented ESPN college football analyst in Jonathan Vilma, according to the New York Post.
Vilma had been covering college football for ESPN and ABC; however, it appears that FOX Sports has hired Vilma to cover the NFL. Vilma will reportedly take over alongside Kenny Albert taking the place of Ronde Barber.
Per the New York Post, “Super Bowl Champion Jonathan Vilma has decided to leave ESPN/ABC and will sign with Fox to be an NFL game analyst, according to sources. Vilma will likely work with Kenny Albert on Sundays in the fall.”
Vilma is the latest to jump from ESPN to FOX Sports reportedly joining Adam Amin, Emmanuel Acho and radio host Will Cain.
The former Miami linebacker starred on the gridiron in South Florida and in the NFL for 10 seasons with the Jets and Saints.
