Phil Simms joining CBS’ The NFL Today as studio analyst

Phil Simms

CBS announced Wednesday that Phil Simms will be joining the show The NFL Today as a studio analyst.

Simms had previously made it clear he wasn’t done working in broadcasting after being bumped for Tony Romo in the live booth next to Jim Nantz.

A consummate professional, we expect Simms to handle the demotion gracefully. He will be joining the likes of Boomer Esiason, Jim Brown and others on the show, rounding out a star-studded crew. He replaces Tony Gonzalez, who left his position last month.
