CBS announced that former NFL linebacker Bart Scott will be an analyst on its pre-game show The NFL Today beginning this fall.

Scott, along will Tony Gonzalez, will replace Shannon Sharpe and Dan Marino on the television program.

“Bart joining THE NFL TODAY is a natural progression from his outstanding work during his first season on TOPS,” said CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus 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.”

Scott spent 11 years in the NFL with both the Baltimore Ravens and New York Jets.
