BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) - Recently retired New England Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi is joining ESPN as an analyst.
Bruschi announced his retirement last week after 13 seasons in which he won three Super Bowls. ESPN says Tuesday that he will provide NFL analysis on its new local sports Web site, ESPNBoston.com, along with various programs on its TV and radio stations.
Bruschi served as captain of the Patriots defense for seven seasons. In 2005, he returned in the seventh game of the season after suffering a mild stroke that February, just days after winning the Super Bowl and playing in his only Pro Bowl.
