Former NFL general manager Mike Tannenbaum has joined ESPN. Tannenbaum, 49, served as general manager of the New York Jets from 2006-12, during which time the Jets finished 57-55 and competed in the playoffs three times, including losses in two AFC conference title games.

In January 2015, he was named the executive vice president/football operations of the Miami Dolphins, who "reassigned" him to an unspecified role after the 2018 season. At ESPN, he will fill the role of front office insider vacated by Bill Polian. He is expected to appear on "SportsCenter," as well as "NFL Live" and other shows, and also contribute to ESPN Radio's draft coverage this month.

"I'm very excited about the opportunity," Tannenbaum told the Miami Herald. "I've always admired the people and professionals at ESPN, and I'm excited to be a part of the team."
