It seems Shannon Sharpe won’t be away from the morning sports talk show circuit for long.
He alluded to a move on Twitter this week after he gave a tearful farewell during his final day on FS1’s “Undisputed” last Tuesday.
“l’m enjoying my early morning workouts, late breakfast, and break from wearing a suit every morning… But just for a little while,” Sharpe wrote on Twitter.
“I’ll be back on [TV] in the mornings soon.”
We already knew it wouldn’t be long for Shannon Sharpe to find a new job, but we had no clue things would happen this quickly.
Hours later, a report stated that the hall of fame tight end is in early talks to join FanDuel, according to Michael McCarthy of Front Office Sports.
FanDuel TV has been making major moves in the past year as they have signed former NFL Network host Kay Adams and ex-ESPN anchor Michelle Beadle. Adding Shannon Sharpe would be a game-changer.
Until is made, Sharpe is enjoying his morning freedoms that are not filled with yelling matches with Skip Bayless.
The news of Sharpe’s exit “Undisputed” came after weeks of rumored tension between the now-former co-hosts. Sharpe ended his seven-year run with Bayless the day after the Denver Nuggets defeated the Miami Heat in Game 5 on June 12th.
Sharpe joined FS1 in 2016, two years after exiting CBS.
Although it remains to be seen where Sharpe will land, the former NFL star is clearly not done being on television.
