I have a feeling Kansas City fans may have just started loving CBS a lot more.
CBS just sent a release on the NFL Today: Tony Gonzalez is in. Dan Marino and Shannon Sharpe are out.

The all-time leader among tight ends in touchdowns and yards replaces another all-time great tight end in Sharpe and a legendary quarterback in Marino. I think Gonzalez is a natural fit for television who will likely be very popular among fans. The move still does surprise some with his sudden replacement of Sharpe and Marino. But many fans tweeted out their happiness.
So, Sharpe & Marino out on CBS… Tony Gonzalez in??? Hell of a trade if you ask me. Get Sharpe off camera immediately.

Adding Tony Gonzalez and subtracting Marino and Sharpe from the studio show? That’s a good thing. #CBSpregame

Some took a more humorous turn with the news.
After being replaced by Tony Gonzalez, I looked back at Shannon Sharpe’s last CBS broadcast & found a hidden message. pic.twitter.com/b1FzS2SHNB

So The NFL Today will have a different pre game look on Sundays with James Brown, Bill Cowher, Boomer Esiason, and now Gonzalez. Will you enjoy seeing Tony G on TV?
The players Chiefs fans should look out for at the NFL Combine.
