Andrew Brandt joined ESPN as an NFL business analyst in February 2011. An accomplished sports executive with more than 25 years of experience in professional football, Brandt provides insight on the league’s labor news and player acquisitions by teams on all ESPN studio shows and platforms such as SportsCenter, NFL Live, First Take, Outside the Lines, ESPNEWS, ESPN Radio and more. Brandt’s two and a half decades in professional football are split evenly between working in team management and player representation. He spent nine years (1999-2008) as vice president of the Green Bay Packers, where he negotiated all player contracts and managed the team’s NFL salary cap. Brandt’s skillful management earned him professional acclaim within the league. The highlights of his Packers tenure included the franchise hosting the NFC Championship Game in 2008 and negotiating contracts for most of the players who eventually lead Green Bay to victory in Super Bowl XLV.
