A longtime NFL reporter is leaving ESPN.

Ed Werder, a 26-year veteran with the network, is on his way out following what has been a memorable career at The Worldwide Leader in Sports.

Werder announced his departure via Twitter/X on Thursday.

“For 26 years, I’ve had the privilege of reporting on the NFL and the Dallas Cowboys while holding an ESPN microphone. But that time is coming to an end,” he wrote. “I will immediately begin considering other opportunities to continue my work covering the NFL.

“My ESPN career was highlighted by being assigned to cover 20 consecutive Super Bowls and included having my contributions honored at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. … While this marks the end of my partnership with ESPN, I expect to continue working because, as so many studio hosts have proclaimed — and I still devoutly believe — ‘Ed Werder has more.’”

The 64-year-old started working for the network in 1998 and was laid off in 2017. He returned in 2019, although he didn’t receive the best treatment from the company, and is leaving again. It will be interesting to see where he ends up.

Werder, who has mostly covered the Dallas Cowboys, has been reporting on football for over 40 years.

Before working at ESPN, he worked for Sports Illustrated, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Orlando Sentinel, and the Dallas Morning News.

He covered 20 Super Bowls in his 26 years at ESPN and is one of the most widely-recognized football journalists around, also earning recognition from the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

“Ed Werder has been a mainstay on ESPN’s NFL coverage for more than 25 seasons,” ESPN said in a statement. “He has elevated our programs, including Sunday NFL Countdown, and the multiple platforms he’s contributed to while reporting at signature games, Super Bowls, and nearly all league events.

“His journalistic instincts and relationships have benefitted fans throughout the years. We thank Ed for everything he contributed and wish him success in the future.”

All the best, Ed!

ESPN couldn’t help but roast the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys while bringing up the recent success of Big D’s other professional sports teams.Seven months after the Texas Rangers of Major League Baseball celebrated their first World Series in franchise history, the

NBA’s Dallas Mavericks and NHL’s Dallas Stars have qualified for the Western Conference Finals in their respective leagues. And then there are the Dallas Cowboys.While discussing the success of the Mavericks, Stars and Rangers, ESPN used the opportunity to humiliate the Cowboys by displaying a graphic that’s not exactly flattering to Jerry Jones and company:

The Mavericks are up 1-0 on the Minnesota Timberwolves in their best-of-seven series, while the Stars will open up their Western Conference Finals series at home against Connor McDavid’s Edmonton Oilers tonight.

The Dallas Cowboys haven’t played in the NFC Championship Game since 1995, the same year last won the Super Bowl. Only the Washington Commanders, Miami Dolphins and Cleveland Browns have longer active conference title game appearance droughts.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones stated back in January that the team would have an “all-in” approach this offseason. But Dallas has surprisingly been among the quietest teams in both free agency and the trade market, having done most of their offseason work at the draft.

Dallas Cowboys Face A Critical Year Entering 2024

Both quarterback Dak Prescott and head coach Mike McCarthy are entering the final years of their contracts. Superstar wide receiver CeeDee Lamb will need an extension as he heads into the last year of his rookie deal, too.

If the Cowboys endure another early postseason exit, one has to wonder if Jones will finally wave the flag and make sweeping changes. It’s certainly interesting that he hasn’t extended his star quarterback as offseason training camp inches closer.

Prescott and the Cowboys will begin their season with a road clash against the Cleveland Browns on Sept. 8.
