Said Michael Wright, President, EPIX, “Our goal with NFL: The Grind is to present fans with deeper insight and a more unique point of view of storytelling than they have seen during the NFL season. These legendary personalities will bring insight, access and perspective to the stories they will be part of that can’t be manufactured; it will be authentic, real and passionate as they have walked in the shoes of the athletes and coaches they will be talking to, and have gone through the up’s and down’s of a career on the gridiron themselves.”

“No one knows the NFL like it’s former superstars, and we’re excited to bring these NFL legends back to where they feel most comfortable – onto the sidelines, into the locker rooms and up close and personal with ‘The Grind’ of the 2019 NFL season,” said Ken Rodgers, NFL Films Vice President, Senior Coordinating Producer.
