/// CBS Lands Tony Gonzalez as NFL Today Analyst
CBS Sports is making some big moves at its signature pro football studio show, signing 10-time All-Pro tight end Tony Gonzalez as an NFL Today analyst. Beginning this fall, Gonzalez joins NFL Today veterans James Brown, Bill Cowher and Boomer Esiason in CBS’ New York studios. With Gonzalez in the lineup, CBS has elected not to renew the contracts of long-time NFL Today contributors Dan Marino and Shannon Sharpe. In a statement issued Tuesday afternoon, CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus acknowledged that Marino and Sharpe would not return for the 2014-15 NFL campaign. “As they pursue other professional opportunities, we thank Dan and Shannon for their hard work and dedication,” McManus said. “We wish them nothing but the best.” Marino put in 12 years behind the NFL Today desk, while Sharpe has been a fixture on the pre-game show since 2004.
