New York Giants wideout Ramses Barden and punter Steve Weatherford to participate in seventh annual NFL Broadcast Boot Camp from June 17-20.

New York Giants wide receiver Ramses Barden and punter Steve Weatherford are two of the 24 current and former NFL stars expected to participate in the seventh annual NFL Broadcast Boot Camp set to take place June 17-20.

Also expected to attend are former New York Giants Jeff Feagles and Michael Clayton, as well as other former standouts such as Torry Holt, Eric Moulds and Ricky Waters.

The NFL Broadcast Boot Camp is a program offered to current and former players who envision a career in the broadcast booth following their career on the grid iron. The program includes sessions on tape study, editing, show and studio preparation, radio production, field reporting, as well as what it's like to be on the air in studio as a game analyst or as a sideline reporter.

Of the 128 players who have taken part in the Broadcast Boot Camp since 2007, 48 now hold jobs in the field of broadcasting.

"This boot camp is more than an introduction to the many facets of the sports broadcasting industry," said Senior Vice President of NFL Player Engagement Troy Vincent. "It is a hands-on, demanding course for current and former players who seek a career in broadcasting after their NFL playing experience. Nearly 40 percent of the players who participated in past camps have earned broadcasting jobs."

Other players (both current and retired) expected to attend are Chad Brown, LaMar Campbell, Doug Chapman, Matt Chatham, Na'il Diggs, Tommy Knight, Charly Martin, Anthony McFarland, Kevin O'Connell, Jordan Palmer, Bryan Scott, Takeo Spikes, Drew Stanton, Ben Utecht, Benjamin Watson and Roland Williams.

Media outlets that will participate include NFL Films, NFL Network, FOX, CBS, Showtime, the Big Ten Network, NBC, Sirius XM and ESPN.
