Richard Deitsch of “Sports Illustrated” is reporting that former Eagles defensive end Hugh Douglas is no longer an employee of ESPN.

Deitsch reports the former NFL player and “Numbers Never Lie” panelist was let go by ESPN Tuesday after disturbing details emerged last week from Deadspin and The Big Lead regarding an alleged confrontation between Douglas and ESPN host Michael Smith.



ESPN issued this statement last Tuesday: “We are aware there was a disagreement between Hugh Douglas and Michael Smith. We are looking into the situation.”
