Two Former NFLers Land Commentator Jobs With Sky Sports
Former NFLers Rocky Boiman and Nick Ferguson will serve as studio analysts for at least one Sunday this season on Sky Sports in the U.K. The duo, who will work separate games, were rewarded based on their performance from this week's NFL Broadcast Boot Camp. Sixteen retired players took part in this week's camp from Monday through Thursday in Mt. Laurel, N.J. The boot camp is designed to help retired players learn the broadcasting business from talent, producers and execs from each of the league's network partners. This marks the first year boot camp participants were rewarded with a position from the event. The NFL says 36 of the 90 former players who took part in the Broadcast Boot Camp from '07-10 have earned broadcasting jobs.
