ESPN has contacted players via letters signed by Barry Abrams, a Feature Producer. Abrams invites players to call and "chat . . . for 10 minutes or so" on the subject, explaining that the story will run on September 29 or 30.
It’s unknown whether ESPN is hoping to demonstrate good character or bad character. Based on the recent Outside the Lines profile of coach Sean Payton, chances are that Abrams isn’t hoping to dig up marshmallows with his shovel.
Sounds like another scandalous tabloid piece at a time when I was just beginning to kinda respect ESPN again.
