Charles Tillman is joining Fox NFL Kickoff, a source familiar with Fox Sports television tells The Big Lead. The source requested anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak publicly on the matter. The show will air before Fox’s main NFL pregame show, nationally, from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET.
As with last year, Colin Cowherd, Charissa Thompson and Dave Wannstedt will be on the program. Gone is Randy Moss, whose talents on the show led him to get snatched up by ESPN, where he’ll appear on Countdown on Sundays and Mondays.
Tillman just retired after a 13-year career, all but one of which were with the Chicago Bears. Last year, the defensive back played for Carolina. He made two Pro Bowls — in 2011 and 2012 — and earned the 2013 Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.
