How To Tackle What’s Next with Eric Wood

Eric Wood is a former NFL center for the Buffalo Bills where he was an immediate starter, 2 time Walter Payton Man of the Year nominee, and a pro bowler. Eric was selected in the 1st round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Bills, a monumental achievement for someone who entered college with only one scholarship offer. Making the playoffs in 2017 and ending the Bills’ playoff drought serves as one of Eric’s most memorable moments from his NFL career, and making the Pro Bowl has become one of his proudest professional accomplishments.

Eric played his entire 9-season NFL career for the Bills before an unexpected spinal injury ultimately ended his on-field career in 2018. With much left to offer the sport, Eric stayed involved in football as a commentator for the Buffalo Bill’s Radio Network, something he still does to this day. Eric also spent some time as a sports columnist for the Athletic, and also has called games for FOX, ESPN, ACC Network and CBS. He has also appeared on the Jim Rome Show, NFL Network, The Herd with Colin Cowherd, and the Rich Eisen Show to provide analysis.
