PFT on NBC Sports Network: Antonio Smith, Scott Pioli


Monday’s episode of Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network gets rolling shortly after the deadline for NFL teams to hand out franchise tags, so it will be the place to turn for instant analysis of who got the tags and who has been left unfettered with the start of free agency a little more than a week away.

Texans defensive end Antonio Smith isn’t going to be on the list either way, but he’ll also be on the show to chat with Erik Kuselias about his offseason. Smith is coming off a seven-sack year for the Texans, who saw their season come to an end in the second round of the playoffs for the second straight year. We’ll find out what Smith thinks needs to happen for the team to take the next step in 2013.

Former Chiefs General Manager Scott Pioli will also be on hand and he’ll help Mike Florio and Ross Tucker preview free agency. We’ll be covering the quarterbacks and running backs on Monday.

It all gets underway at 5 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network.
