Floyd Reese, longtime Titans GM and recent ESPN analyst, has been hired is a consultant' role with the Patriots.

Hate to see him go. He was one of the guys on their programs that always made sense and seemed to know what he was talking about (and given his experience, why not?)

He was probably my favorite. He was never about show, just direct and straight to the point.

That, plus he had the credentials. He'd done the job and done it successfully.

ESPN tends to like having one former GM around. Wonder if they'll try for Rich McKay.

Jaws is the only one worth listening to at ESPN. The rest just regurgitate each other.

Nah, Reese was OK. He even made fun of himself for drafting Pac Man.

On ESPN, I listen to anything said by Jaworski or Tom Jackson. Merrill Hoge and Trey Wingo are good, not great. Chris Mortensen used to be king for inside info but these days Jay Glazer has him beat by a mile.

Reese was great for looking into the "behind the scenes" stuff. Their draft coverage won't be as good without his insight.

Well, it's not like he could hide from it.

I really like hearing Tom Jackson, seems not to babble too much.
