At this time last year, no one would have predicted that former NFL quarterbacks Tony Romo and Jay Cutler would be sitting in a broadcasting booth this fall. Sure enough, they will be joining the workforce of other former players who have landed television jobs.
Prior to Romo and Cutler landing jobs, retired wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. took a job at NFL Network. Never shy to put his two cents in, Smith is lighting it up on camera. He recently covered the 2017 NFL Draft and was on fire with some of his spicy remarks. At the same time, he was doing his best to school his colleagues, many years his senior.
Smith is the real deal and gives fans the stuff they truly enjoy hearing.
