Dear NFL Legend:
A new season on the field signals a new season for NFL content in the media. Earlier this month, NFL Network premiered Good Morning Football, a daily three-hour live show from New York City. Former wide receiver Nate Burleson, who had an 11-year career with the Vikings, Seahawks and Lions, is among the hosts of this fresh and innovative programming.
Other Legends will be featured on the Emmy-nominated A Football Life. The 13-episode season will feature Legends including Pro Football Hall of Famers Troy Aikman, Jim Brown,Brett Favre, Kevin Greene, Curtis Martin and Steve Young. A Football Life airs on Friday nights on NFL Network.
NFL Legends also will call game action as studio and color analysts on all of the major networks. Check out the list of NFL Legends calling games nationally in 2016. Many more serve as sideline reporters, studio hosts and play-by-play men for local NFL team radio and TV broadcasts.
A reminder that the NFL Player Engagement Department and NFL Legends Community will present the second annual “NFL Bridge to Success” this fall at the DFW Lakes Hilton in Grapevine, Texas. This program, exclusively for Legends and their spouse or significant other, is designed to empower you through your next phase in life and provide the tools and peer-to-peer support to equip you mentally, emotionally, physically and financially.
