PATRIOTS wide receiver JULIAN EDELMAN, defensive end CHANDLER JONES and All-Pro defensive tackle VINCE WILFORK will also make weekly MONDAY appearances on WEEI throughout the season, while PATS linebacker JEROD MAYO will be a FRIDAY regular.
New this season are former PATRIOT Pro Bowlers RODNEY HARRISON, TUESDAYS and FRIDAYS; and TEDY BRUSCHI MONDAY afternoons. They join another new addition, HALL OF FAME wide receiver and NFL NETWORK analyst MICHAEL IRVIN, who will appear FRIDAY afternoons on WEEI. SPORTS ILLUSTRATED NFL analyst and award-winning columnist PETER KING, WEEI.COM PATRIOTS beat writer CHRIS PRICE, ESPN’s NFL Insider ADAM SCHEFTER, NFL.COM fantasy football expert MIKE FABIANO and TOM E. CURRAN of COMCAST SPORTS round out the station’s weekday cast of pro football experts.
WEEI’s NFL coverage extends to the weekend with RODNEY HARRISON’s "Safety Blitz" program SATURDAY mornings.
