Top NFL Producers & Talent Coached Players at NFL Films

Twenty-three current and former NFL players took part in the 11th annual NFL Broadcast Boot Camp May 15-18 at NFL Films in Mt. Laurel, NJ. In addition, four Broadcast Boot Camp graduates participated in the “Advanced Broadcasting” program.

The four-day boot camp, co-directed by the NFL Player Engagement and NFL broadcasting departments, covered a wide range of topics with instructors from top broadcast and radio networks, including Big Ten Network, CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC, NFL Network, SiriusXM, and Westwood One Radio.

“Our Broadcast Boot camp not only provides players with the opportunity to enhance their skills and build key relationships, but also the confidence required to succeed in the media industry,” said Arthur McAfee, Senior Vice President of NFL Player Engagement. "We are proud to offer players a variety of career development programs designed to prepare them for post-playing days.”

Players further developed their skills in play-by-play analysis, radio broadcasting, and field reporting through hands-on sessions in areas such as tape study, editing, production meetings, and studio and show preparation.

Each player additionally taped segments as a game analyst and a field reporter, and served as a live guest host on SiriusXM NFL Radio.
