When Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew joined PFT Live in January for an entertaining segment, he said that he could be following his 2010 SiriusXM fantasy football show with an offseason program.
“Could” has become “will.”
We’re told that Jones-Drew will host a weekly show on Sirius NFL Radio, with co-host Bryan McGovern. It’ll be called Late Hits with MJD, and it airs from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. ET on Tuesdays.
“My SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio show has been such a successful way for me to interact with the fans that I felt doing another show on Sirius NFL Radio is the best avenue for me to discuss a range of current NFL issues,” Jones-Drew said. “On the show we’ll discuss the work stoppage and its effect on the games, talk to players to find out how they are spending their time away from the game, and give fans a place to talk about the NFL draft and what their teams need to do to prepare for the next season.”
We’ll reach out to Maurice to invite him to return to PFT Live to promote the new show, which debuts tonight.
