As the Cincinnati Bengals gear up for their first home game of the 2014 NFL pre-season tonight at Paul Brown Stadium, former Bengal and Fort Thomas resident Cris Collinsworth offered some kind words on Twitter today to his now former Inside the NFL co-hosts:
Collinsworth indicated that he would not be returning to the program as early as April of this year.
Collinsworth played for the Cincinnati Bengals from 1981-1988, and began his broadcasting career with 700 WLW shortly after. He has been with Inside the NFL since its days as an HBO program, back in 1989. He has also broadcasted with NBC and FOX.
As his tweet suggests, Collinsworth left the show in order to enjoy his now "empty nest" and spend more time with his wife, Holly.
