Carolina Panthers tight end to serve as ESPN guest analyst on Super Bowl Sunday for second straight year

Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen will be a special guest analyst on ESPN’s four-hour Postseason NFL Countdown pregame show (10 a.m. ET) for Super Bowl LIII on Sunday, Feb. 3. The three-time Pro Bowler will join host Suzy Kolber and analysts Louis Riddick and Steve Young on ESPN’s set at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

Olsen, who played in Super Bowl 50, is making his second straight ESPN appearance on Super Bowl Sunday. A year ago, he joined Kolber, Riddick and Young in Minneapolis for Super Bowl LII.

“We’re really fortunate to have Greg join our big Super Bowl Sunday Countdown pregame show for a second straight year. Greg has played in the Super Bowl, he has terrific insights on the game, and he knows the personnel of the Rams and Patriots and how these two teams match up,” said Seth Markman, ESPN vice president, production.

In addition to the stadium set led by Kolber, Sam Ponder will co-host Countdown from ESPN’s set location in Centennial Olympic Park in downtown Atlanta with Matt Hasselbeck, Randy Moss, Rex Ryan and Charles Woodson. Insiders Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter will also contribute to the show, while Sal Paolantonio (Patriots) and Josina Anderson (Rams) will have the latest updates on the teams.
