Former Bengals QB Boomer Esiason will call Bengals game this weekend

Richard Mackson-US PRESSWIRE

Former Bengals quarterback Boomer Esiason will join Kevin Harlan and Solomon Wilcots in Buffalo to call the Bengals game for CBS.

Sorry, Buffalo fans.

When you watch the Bengals take on the Buffalo Bills this Sunday on CBS, there won't be just one former Bengals player in the booth. Kevin Harlan and former Bengals defensive back Solomon Wilcots ('87-'90) will be joined by a third member in the booth, former Bengals quarterback Boomer Esiason ('84-'92).

"I have a tough week ahead because I have three games that I’m calling," Esiason said in the CBS Press Release. "I called the Atlanta-Jets game on Monday night. I get to call the Chicago-Giants game on Thursday night, and then Cincinnati-Buffalo on Sunday afternoon. This is a football fan’s dream to be able to do all three of these games.

"Every time I go back to Buffalo I think about the Bruce Smith hit I took in 1995, so it’s not always the greatest of memories in that building. Buffalo has a great passionate fan base and Doug Marrone’s starting to turn the franchise around. Cincinnati is going to be a legitimate playoff contender and I get a chance to see Andy Dalton up close and personal. So for me, it’s a football fan’s dream and certainly for anyone who works in the business."

Esiason won't be the only member of the studio crew calling the game of his former team. Bill Cowher will form a three-man team with Jim Nantz and Phil Simms to call the game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Jets. Tight end Shannon Sharpe will join Ian Eagle and Dan Foutes to call the Denver Broncos (slightly favored) contest against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
