ESPN has added a pair of special guests for its Super Bowl LI coverage in Houston – New York Giants All-Pro wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and former Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan. Beckham and Ryan will be part of ESPN’s Postseason NFL Countdown special on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 5 (11 a.m. – 2 p.m. ET), joining co-host Suzy Kolber and Hall of Famer Steve Young from ESPN’s set at NRG Stadium.

One of the league’s most dynamic players, Beckham has made the Pro Bowl in each of his three NFL seasons and he helped the Giants earn a NFL Wild Card Playoff berth in 2016. Ryan, who coached the Bills the past two seasons and the New York Jets from 2009-14, was a member of the coaching staff of the Super Bowl XXXV champion Baltimore Ravens.

Chris Berman will host ESPN’s three-hour Countdown show on Super Bowl Sunday from the company’s main set in downtown Houston. He will be joined by Wendi Nix and analysts Matt Hasselbeck, Trent Dilfer, Randy Moss and Charles Woodson. In addition, NFL Insider Adam Schefter will be at the stadium and Sal Paolantonio (covering the Patriots) and Ed Werder (Falcons) will provide the latest updates on the teams on game day.
