NFL Players Retirement

Strahan Forming New Career on Small-Screen


Former New York Giants superstar, Michael Strahan, is set to co-star alongside Darryl Mitchell in the new comedy series, “Brothers”, which will debut as part of Fox’s new fall lineup.  Strahan will pretty much be playing himself…a former NFL player.  His character will be moving back into his mother’s home after his NFL career ended.  The show also features Carl Weathers, another former NFL player.  This won’t be the former defensive end’s first television experience.  In April he premiered as the new host of Spike TV’s Pros vs. Joes, and joined the team of the FOX NFL Sunday pregame show before last season.  In the past, he has appeared in commercials for Snickers and Right Guard.  He’s also made guest appearances on Mad Money with Jim Cramer, NBC’s Chuck, and Fox News’ Hannity.  Strahan is represented by Maury Gostfrand of Vision Sports Group, LLC.  The sports management and marketing agency specializes in helping athletes and coaches attain jobs in broadcasting, as well as other television and radio opportunities.  Other VSG clients include Kenny Smith, John Kruk and Hubert Davis.
