The SportsXchange

Former NFL linebacker Bart Scott is joining CBS' pregame show The NFL Today this season, the network announced.

Scott, who played for the Baltimore Ravens and New York Jets, spent last season as an analyst for CBS Sports Network's The Other Pregame Show.

"Bart joining The NFL Today is a natural progression from his outstanding work during his first season on TOPS," CBS Sports Chairman Sean McManus said in a statement. "Bart brings a dynamic personality and unique perspective as a recently retired player providing strong opinions on all the hot-button issues on a weekly basis. We are confident he will continue to bring that perspective and those opinions to The NFL Today."

Last week, CBS announced former Kansas City Chiefs and Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez will be on The NFL Today. He and Scott join host James Brown, Boomer Esiason, Bill Cowher and insider Jason La Canfora. Dan Marino and Shannon Sharpe left the show.

Scott spent 11 seasons in the NFL.
