Steve Smith Sr. is coming to your television sets on Sunday.
The veteran wide receiver will trade in his helmet and shoulder pads for a suit and tie to be part of the CBS pre-game broadcast. *Smith will take his spot on the *NFL Today desk alongside James Brown, Bill Cowher, Tony Gonzalez, Boomer Esiason and former Raven Bart Scott.
Smith is done for the year on the football field because of a torn Achilles, but he's still plenty busy away from the game.
He's stayed highly involved in his charity work, and he recently returned to Baltimore from his home in Charlotte to host the Ravens' annual Holiday Helpers event. Smith's work in the community has earned him the Ravens' nomination for the NFL's Walter Payton Man of the Year Award. As a finalist, Smith can earn $20,000 for a charity of his choice if fans vote for him on social media by using the hashtag #SmithWPMOYChallenge.
Smith will discuss his nomination for the NFL's award, and he will also provide his analysis around the big topics around the NFL. His future plans will likely come up during the course of the one-hour show, as he's yet to say whether he plans to play again in 2016.
Smith initially said this season would be his last, but there have been reports since his injury in early November that he will try to give it a go for another year. Smith has not made any public comments about his plans for next season since the injury.
The 36-year-old receiver could certainly have a future in the media if he decides to go that route. He dabbled in that area with a stint on a SiriusXM radio during the offseason, and on Sunday he'll take his seat in front of the national CBS audience.
