Boomer Esiason

  • NFL Football Legend
  • Studio Analyst
  • Inspirational Speaker

Boomer Esiason, who quarterbacked the Cincinnati Bengals, New York Jets and the Arizona Cardinals during a 14-year NFL career, joined CBS Sports in February 2002 as a studio analyst for the CBS Television Network's NFL pre-game show The NFL Today. Esiason has once again joined host Jim Nantz, Dan Marino and Deion Sanders for another season in the studio.

Upon retiring after the 1997 season, he headed straight for the broadcast booth. Esiason made his debut as a commentator for ABC's NFL Monday Night Football, and called MNF games for two years. For the past three years, he has called games for Westwood One/CBS Radio Sports' Monday Night Football broadcasts and will once again join Marv Albert for his fourth year in the booth. In addition, he is also co-host of Westwood One's weekly NFL preview show, In The Huddle with Chris "Mad Dog" Russo. During the 2001 season, Esiason also served as an analyst on FOX Sports Net's NFL This Morning.

After an All-America career at the University of Maryland, Boomer Esiason was selected in the second round of the 1984 NFL draft by the Cincinnati Bengals and became one of the most successful quarterbacks in NFL history. In 1986 he earned his first Pro Bowl bid while leading the NFL's most productive offense. In 1988 he led the NFL with a 97.4 passer rating and helped the Bengals win the AFC Championship before bowing to San Francisco in Super Bowl XXIII. That year, Esiason was named the NFL's Most Valuable Player by the Pro Football Writers of America and the Associated Press. He again was the NFL passing leader in 1989 as Cincinnati claimed another division title. In 1993 after a trade to the Jets, Esiason became a Pro Bowler for a second time. In only three seasons with the Jets, he became the team's fourth-leading passer all-time. After a year playing for the Arizona Cardinals, he returned to Cincinnati where he ended his career with 2,969 completions in 5,205 pass attempts (57 % completion percentage) for 247 touchdowns and 37,920 yards.

Throughout his career motivational speaker Boomer Esiason, along with his wife, Cheryl, has been a committed and very active member in many charitable causes, including the Boomer Esiason Foundation, founded in 1993 in an effort to eliminate the threat of cystic fibrosis after his son, Gunnar, was diagnosed with the disease. Esiason was born April 17, 1961 in East Islip, N.Y. and now lives in Plandome, N.Y. with his wife, daughter, Sydney, and son.
