ESPN has locked down senior writer Bill Barnwell with a new multi-year contract. He will continue to write for ESPN.com as well as host his podcast.

Barnwell will continue to focus on the NFL, and his expertise will be utilized across ESPN. In addition to his writing, Barnwell will also regularly appear on SportsCenter and the new gambling-focused show The Daily Wager. He will also contribute to ESPN Radio.

“ESPN has been a wonderful place to work, and I’m excited to continue my career here,” said Barnwell. “I’m blessed to write alongside very talented colleagues and for a brilliant editorial staff which tolerates exhaustingly long columns about football twice a week.”

Barnwell originally joined the company in 2011 as a part of the Grantland staff. He transitioned to ESPN.com in November of 2015.
