Less than a full day into NFL Free Agency, ESPN has announced a major signing of its own.

Two-time Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl champion and 12-time Pro Bowler Ray Lewis is joining the company as a NFL studio analyst.

Lewis, who will have a prominent role on Monday Night Countdown and Sunday NFL Countdown, is visiting the ESPN campus in Bristol, Conn., today as part of the EA Sports Madden cover vote. He is scheduled to appear on multiple programs throughout the day, including ESPN Radio’s Mike and Mike in the Morning (9:45 a.m. ET), SportsCenter (10 a.m.) and NFL Live (4 p.m.), where he will discuss his new ESPN role.

In the Front & Center podcast above, John Wildhack, ESPN’s executive vice president, production, talks about the addition of Lewis to ESPN’s NFL roster and what fans can expect from the future Hall of Famer as a broadcaster.
