Troy Brown played wide receiver and defensive back during his long career with the Patriots and he’s adding another position to the list in retirement.
Brown will be a studio analyst for one game as a result of his strong work at the NFL Broadcast Boot Camp in New Jersey this week. Brown was one of 23 current and former players accepted into the six-year-old program designed to help players move into broadcasting when they are done playing. Former Packers tackle Mark Tauscher won the same one-game gig at the end of the four-day camp.
Now for the bad news. Unless you’re in the United Kingdom, you won’t be able to see how they do. Both players will be doing their analysis for the league’s UK partners in games shown on the other side of the Atlantic. If they do well, there’s probably a good shot you’ll wind up seeing them over here at this point.
You can listen to two other winners. Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson and Broncos tight end Joel Dreessen were chosen to be co-hosts on Sirius XM NFL Radio at some point during the regular season. The dates of all four assignments will be announced in the future.
