The NFL on CBS just got interesting with the news that Jenny Dell is back in the sideline reporting game. As you know, Dell was relieved of her duties as the Red Sox sideline reporter when it became public that she was hooked up with Will Middlebrooks.
CBS, looking for its own version of Erin Andrews to compete with Fox, announced today that Dell and Evan Washburn are the new hires.
Excited to announce that I will be joining the @NFLonCBS family this year! Dream come true!
Brilliant move by CBS. You get a sideline reporter who has never (that I can find) worked as an NFL sideline reporter, but she has all that Red Sox experience. You have her work the warm climate games, tell her to wear something ridiculous and release her into the wild.
It’s not like this stuff is hard. She’s asking a coach, “What did you tell your team at halftime?” or “What can your defense do better in the second half to slow down Andy Dalton?” and call it a day.
