Keyshawn Johnson had a nice nine-year run as an analyst at ESPN, and that has now come to an end. The former NFL WR was thought to be an up-and-coming star at the network when he was hired in 2007, but Keyshawn could never become that polarizing figure he was on the football field.

According to Richard Deitsch of SI.com, ESPN opted not to renew Johnson’s contract.

With future Hall-of-Famer Charles Woodson set to retire, rumors are swirling that he will be Johnson’s replacement at the network.

Deitsch also adds that legendary ESPN Sunday NFL Countdown host Chris Berman’s contract is set to expire after 2016, along with the “Coach” Mike Ditka. No word has been released yet on what ESPN plans to do with their deals. It would not be surprising if they are holding off until a certain someone named Peyton Manning decides to call it a career. When he does, he will have his choice of jobs to choose from, whether it be in television or even on the football field/front office.
