Ed Reed and Brandon Marshall Join Showtime’s ‘Inside the NFL’

Former 12-year NFL safety Ed Reed, current Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall and retired quarterback Boomer Esiason will be joining Phil Simms as analysts, along with new host Greg Gumbel, on Showtime’s “Inside the NFL.”

The show’s seventh season starts Sept. 2 on Showtime.

“Inside the NFL on Showtime” is produced by CBS Sports and NFL Films and will air every Tuesday during the NFL season through Feb. 4. NFL Network will reair the show on Wednesdays (9 p.m. ET) throughout the season.

“The additions of Greg as host, along with new analysts Boomer, Ed and Brandon, combined with Phil, follow along in the tradition of excellence that fans have come to expect from this show,” said CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus. “With Ed just coming off the playing field and Brandon still on it, this show truly brings a unique perspective that is unseen on any other show.”

Reed spent 12 years in the NFL, going to nine pro bowls and winning one Super Bowl while Marshall, who is in the NFL, will segue from playing on Sundays to analyzing on Tuesday nights, which is rare for players in the league today.

The show will mark the first time either has taken on a full-time role as an analyst.
