At last check, linebacker Bart Scott was planning to pick a team last week. He apparently did. But not a football team.
CBS has announced that Scott has joined the cast of a CBS pre-pregame show, which will be hosted by friend of PFT Adam Schein.
Also on the program will be former Raiders CEO Amy Trask, who will be able to bring a unique perspective to the business aspects of the NFL.
The show will be called That Other Pregame Show, a name that while a bit irreverent is also (in all candor) a bit clunky.
And so ends, presumably, the career of a defense player who spent seven seasons with the Ravens and four with the Jets. Scott hadn’t drawn much interest, and last week’s report may have simply been the equivalent of a Hail Mary effort to see if an NFL team wanted to sigh him.
The four-hour show launches every Sunday at 9:00 a.m. and continues until 1:00 p.m., which means that the final hour will overlap with The NFL Today.
