Best NFL News of the Month
Possibly the best NFL news of the entire offseason: Bryant Gumbel will no longer be doing play-by-play on NFL Network games.
The NFL Network said Friday it was looking for a new play-by-play announcer to work with Cris Collinsworth on the network’s Thursday and Saturday night games.
“I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to call NFL Network games the past two years, which was a new experience for me,” Gumbel said in a statement. “But we’ve agreed that we’d all be better served going in different directions.”
The fans cannot but agree. Gumbel is a wretched play-by-play guy. This is a very good move for the NFLN brand.
