Earlier Thursday afternoon, ESPN announced it locked up its two biggest insiders with new contracts.
Both NFL insider Adam Schefter and NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski aren't going anywhere. Jimmy Pitaro, Chairman, ESPN & Sports Content, announced both men signed new deals with the Worldwide Leader.
"Adam and Woj are difference-makers that solidify our long-term position as the definitive source for everything NFL and NBA," Pitaro said in a statement. "When you combine today's news about Adam and Woj with Jeff Passan's signing, we are making a deliberated statement about ESPN's commitment to serving fans with the most in-depth reporting, storytelling and around-the-clock news."
Now we know just how much the Worldwide Leader paid to sign both Schefter and Wojnarowski. According to a report from OutKick, both Schefter and Woj will be bringing home $10 million per year.
ESPN re-signed insiders Adam Schefter and Adrian Wojnarowski to multi-year contracts on Thursday. And sources tell OutKick that ESPN will pay each of them $10 million a year.
ESPN has been on a spending spree over the past few weeks. The Worldwide Leader shelled out top dollar for both Troy Aikman and Joe Buck to become its new Monday Night Football broadcasters.
ESPN also kept MLB insider Jeff Passan with a new deal as well.
