Burleson in, Scott out on NFL To­day

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS - NEW YORK —

CBS is mak­ing an­other change to its cast for the “NFL To­day” show on Sun­days, re­plac­ing Bart Scott with Nate Burleson.

Burleson is the sec­ond new­comer to the pro­gram, with Phil Simms mov­ing from the broad­cast booth to the stu­dio. That switch was an­nounced last month.

Burleson played 11 NFL sea­sons as a wide re­ceiver for the Vik­ings, Sea­hawks and Lions. He is the only player in NFL his­tory to have three punt re­turns of 90 or more yards.

He is co-host of “Good Morn­ing Foot­ball” on NFL Net­work, and will re­main in that role in ad­di­tion to his work at CBS. CBS an­nounced his new role Mon­day.

Burleson joins host James Brown, Bill Cowher, Boomer Esi­a­son and Simms on “NFL To­day.”
