ESPN is going all in with Keyshawn Johnson.

After The Post’s Andrew Marchand reported Johnson landed a spot on ESPN Radio’s national morning show, ESPN announced that the former Jets receiver will also be a part of the network’s revamped “NFL Live” program starting in August.

Laura Rutledge will be the new host of “NFL Live,” replacing Wendi Nix, as The Post previously reported. Marcus Spears, Dan Orlovsky and Mina Kimes will join Johnson as daily analysts, while Ryan Clark will appear on Fridays. The NFL and radio moves leave Trey Wingo in limbo.

Johnson, 47, was an analyst on “Sunday Night Countdown” and “Monday Night Countdown” from 2007-2015 before leaving briefly in 2016. He’s been hosting a local radio show on ESPN Radio in Los Angeles.

Kimes will no longer host the “ESPN Daily” podcast, with that gig going to Pablo Torre. The Post previously reported that Torre was getting a contract extension after the network pulled the plug on “High Noon,” which featured Torre and Bomani Jones.

not near where his mouth said he was.

 

but I'd give him somewhere between a B or a B+ overall grade

Did Keyshawn start the trend of WRs being self-absorbed?

No but he did start the trend of wearing low numbers when he took 19

KJ has a world class mouth so getting this job makes sense. If he only ran as fast as his gums flapped, he might have been a solid WR.

All it took was Parcells to guarantee he was going to take Payton Manning 1st overall, and he’d come out a year early.

Instead he picked Keyshawn, perhaps the A1 Jetiest thing ever.

Wrong year. That was the Farrior pick in 1997 I think. Parcells got cute with Manning and then traded back (apparently didn't want Orlando Pace, another HOF'er either) to #8. Selected Farrior over HOF'er Walter Jones, HOF'er Tony Gonzalez, Warrick Dunn (instead later traded for and grossly overpaid CMart), and OT and multiple pro bowler Tarik Glenn. And then the Jets let Farrior walk a few years later. That's why you weren't allowed to shop for the groceries, Fat Ass. 

Phuuuuu.....

😦

Don't forget Parcells other blunder in trading Hugh Douglas.  As if it's so easy to find pure pass rushers.

We were also the worst team in the NFL when BP took over and we traded multiple picks to acquire him.  So the trade down was to try to fill multiple positions.  And don't forget BP signed a HOF center in Mawae and HOF RB in Curtis Martin.  Plus he took us to the brink of winning the SB (the closest we've ever been since 1969) when we led 10-0 in the 2H of that Denver game (with an Atlanta team we beat soundly earlier that year as the team we'd face in the Superbowl).

It's amazing to me how underrated BP is by Jet fans.
