NEW YORK (AP/CBS4) — Longtime analyst and former Broncos tight end Shannon Sharpe will not return to CBS’ “The NFL Today” pregame show.
CBS chief Sean McManus said in a statement that the Hall of Famer won’t be back, and neither will Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino.
“Dan and Shannon are true Hall of Famers on the field and in front of the camera. As they pursue other professional opportunities, we thank them for their hard work and dedication and wish them nothing but the best.”
Sharpe leaves after a decade with CBS.
CBS says recently retired star tight end Tony Gonzalez will join the network as an analyst for “The NFL Today” as well as other programming.
