I have no idea why everyone is going nuts and hiring current players and coaches for analyst positions, but another one (this time a player) has been swooped up off the golf course. Actually this one could count as work release…..
Chiefs defensive end Jared Allen was decked out in a dark suit and bright tie, and not a hair was out of place.
He was the only one who felt out of place.
Instead of arriving at Qualcomm Stadium to play in an AFC first-round game on Sunday afternoon, Allen was on hand as a reporter for NFL Network’s coverage of the San Diego Chargers-Tennessee Titans game.
I apparently never watch the NFL Network unless a game is on, so I had no idea Allen was even there. I poked fun at Allen’s DUI arrest above, but I guess it’s good he’s spending his offseason doing something constructive.
In related news…..Jason Taylor was great on NBC. Herm Edwards was horrible and provided no insight on ESPN. Richard Seymour canceled his appearance and I never saw Trent Green. Good times.
