Jenn Brown in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue?

Jenn Brown, ESPN’s new Thursday night college football sideline reporter, has been asked to pose in Sports Illustrated’s 2011 swimsuit issue.

(No word on whether she accepted.) Brown, who is featured this week in Esquire, seems to be a hybrid of Erin Andrews (blonde), Jen Sterger (see bikini photos), and Michelle Beadle (inviting smile). Since the response to Brown in yesterday’s Erin Andrews post was overwhelming positive, here’s Miss Brown in various poses on the red carpet. And here are some bikini photos of her.
