The Undefeated will retain one of its top NFL writers. Jason Reid has signed a multi-year extension to remain on the staff of ESPN’s boutique site devoted to sports, race and culture.
The new deal will allow Reid to continue branching out across several ESPN platforms. He already contributes to Outside the Lines and SportsCenter, he makes regular appearances on various ESPN Radio shows, and in September 2016 provided the cover story for ESPN:The Magazine.
Reid was a beat writer covering the NFL for The Washington Post before his tenure at ESPN began in 2016. Less than a year later he joined the staff of The Undefeated.
“Jason is a dogged reporter whose work on athletes and activism has helped to define one of the central sports themes of our time,” ESPN’s Senior Vice President and Editor-in-Chief, Kevin Merida, said in a press release. “His collective body of journalism is extraordinary. We are fortunate to have him as our senior NFL writer.

New York Sports Media Reacts To Mets’ Gigantic Max Scherzer Deal
Many notable names in New York Sports Radio have taken to social media to let the world know their feelings on the move by the Mets.
The New York Mets have agreed with pitcher Max Scherzer on a three-year deal that is worth an obscene amount of money. The excitement around the team feels to be at a new high in the city of New York.
Many notable names in New York sports radio have taken to social media to let the world know their feelings on the move by the Mets.
There is no understating the significance of this move by the New York Mets. Max Scherzer is a three-time Cy Young winner and one of the most prolific pitchers in the sport for the last decade, winning 190 games over his 13-year career.
It is worth noting however that the Mets have had a notorious history of giving out bad contracts to veteran players, with players like Pedro Martinez, Bobby Bonilla, and Mo Vaughn just to name a few as examples.
This is just one of many big signings that the Mets have already made this offseason. They have already added Starling Marte, Eduardo Escobar, and Mark Canha to the team as well.
Max Scherzer will be making $130 million over the duration of the three-year contract. The $43.33 million average annual salary sets a record, surpassing the $36 million New York Yankees pitcher Gerrit Cole is averaging after signing a nine-year, $324 million contract in 2019.
Dan Le Batard Trolls Skip Bayless After Cowboys Loss
“It is hard to understand why such a video exists. It isn’t hard to understand why it ended up on Le Batard’s Twitter feed.”
When the Cowboys lose or when LeBron James wins, social media comes for sports media’s most notorious hater. After the Dallas Cowboys fell in overtime on Thanksgiving night, Dan Le Batard was among those with Skip Bayless squarely in their crosshairs.
Le Batard posted a video of Bayless dancing in an Ezekiel Elliot jersey with no comment.
It is hard to understand why such a video exists. It isn’t hard to understand why it ended up on Le Batard’s Twitter feed. No one loves poking fun at the industry or his colleagues more than Dan Le Batard and Skip Bayless is ripe for parody.
Whether or not Bayless takes it personally remains to be seen. There have been stories in the past of the FS1 host wanting those that make fun of him disciplined. We have even seen evidence of him being thin-skinned show up on television. Still, it is hard to imagine that he doesn’t know this comes with the territory of the place in sports media he has chosen to occupy.
The loss drops the Cowboys to 7-4, which is still good enough to keep Dallas in first place in the NFC East by a healthy margin. Skip Bayless may be a dyed-in-the-wool Cowboys fan, but surely a regular season loss didn’t ruin his holiday.
For Le Batard though, content will always be king and that video certainly is content.
