The next ex-player who will join an NFL broadcast network will be J.J. Watt, which probably won’t come as a surprise to even the most casual football fan.

CBS Sports confirmed that Watt signed a multi-year contract, will serve as a studio analyst on the network and will make his first appearance coming with the “NFL Today” crew in Week 1. The details of his contract were not released.
