The NFL will have a female official working regular season games for the first time this season, but Sarah Thomas will be making a stop on Thursday’s edition of PFT Live before she gets to the field.

Thomas will join Mike Florio to talk about how she worked her way into position to be considered for a spot in the NFL and how it feels to get the call from the big leagues as well as how it feels to be the first woman to get the call. Thomas will serve as a line judge next season after working in the collegiate ranks for Conference USA.

Florio will also have Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on the show to discuss the latest on the Steelers. They’ll talk needs in the draft, Ben Roethlisberger’s new contract, Troy Polamalu’s future and more during the visit.

PFT Live: Bills talk with Vic Carucci, Titans talk with Jim Wyatt

Eric Wood AP

The Bills became one of the first teams in the league to start their offseason work on Monday and it came with a familiar burst of bravado from their coach Rex Ryan.

Ryan said that he expects to win big right away in Buffalo and we’ll spend some time on Tuesday’s edition of PFT Live discussing their chances of doing that. Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News will join Mike Florio to talk about the state of the team after a busy offseason that saw the team add quarterback Matt Cassel, running back LeSean McCoy and others to Ryan’s cupboard.

No one’s expecting the Titans to win big in the near future, although they have the second pick in the draft to use as a building block toward better days. Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean will also be on the show for a chat about the team’s plans for that second pick.
