ESPN has reached an agreement with one of their own biggest NFL TV free agents as they have signed sports media personalities Mina Kimes to a new contract that will pay her more than $1.7 million per year, according to the New York Post’s Andrew Marchand.
Additionally, Kimes also has a separate deal with Peyton Manning’s Omaha Productions for her sports talk podcasts, and Omaha Productions and ESPN have an existing partnership agreement in place.
Kimes’ role with ESPN will basically stay the same and she will remain in place as a featured member of the ‘NFL Live’ crew and continue making appearances on other ESPN shows as one of their leading NFL journalists.
The exact term of Kimes’ contract is not yet known but the new deal provides Kimes with a marked raise and puts her in the same financial neighborhood as her ‘NFL Live’ teammate Marcus Spears. Spears inked his own four-year deal over the summer.
