NFL Communications– “Smith signed a multi-year deal to appear as an analyst on various NFL Network shows, including NFL GameDay First which airs every Sunday at 7:00 AM Eastern during the NFL season. Smith’s NFL Network duties will start immediately as he will be part of the network’s coverage on Super Bowl Sunday from Houston, joining the special 8.5-hour edition of NFL GameDay Morning which starts at 9:00 AM ET.”
I think the writing was on the wall since the day Steve retired that he’d be an analyst somewhere. The guy is the most electric talker in NFL history. I’m a little disappointed it happened with NFL Network though. NFL Network is always my last choice to watch pregame coverage. But this was a great hire for the network, because now I guarantee a lot of non-watchers will tune in just to hear what Steve Smith is going to say next. I know I will. And we’ll get a great taste of what’s to come this Sunday for Super Bowl coverage. Can’t wait.
