Chad Pennington Joins NFL on Fox As Game Analyst

By Marcus Vanderberg 

Quarterback Chad Pennington is stepping away from football for at least one year and will join the NFL on Fox broadcast crew in the fall as a game analyst.

The 35-year-old signed a one-year contact and will work with play-by-play man Sam Rosen when the season starts.

Pennington is recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament that he injured while playing pickup basketball.

“He came to Los Angeles for an audition a few weeks ago and we think he has a chance to be a pretty successful analyst,” Fox Sports spokesman Dan Bell told The Miami Herald Saturday morning.
