ESPN in trying to be “professional” about Emmitt’s poor announcing, says thanks but no thanks in renewing Emmitt’s contract for next year.
Emmitt Smith will not be back with ESPN next NFL season.
The network elected not to renew Smith’s contract, which expired earlier this month.
The former Dallas Cowboys star worked the past two years for ESPN after a brief stint with the NFL Network.
“We thank Emmitt for his contribution to ESPN and his work ethic for the last two years,” said ESPN spokesman Nate Smeltz. “We wish him all the best.”
Wow. About the only good thing they could say about him was his work ethic? Good luck Emmitt. We don’t need those guys at Sportscenter anyways.
