Jones-Drew to host fantasy radio show
NEW YORK (AP)
Fantasy football buff Maurice Jones-Drew is getting his own radio show to share his expertise with fans.
The Pro Bowl Jacksonville Jaguars running back will host the program every Friday night during the season on the new all-fantasy-sports station on satellite radio service Sirius XM.
Jones-Drew lost the NFL Players Association fantasy league title to Cato June in 2008. Last season, he good-naturedly acknowledged that by taking a knee at the 1 to seal a victory against the Jets, he cost himself a fantasy win.
Nine-time NHL All-Star Jeremy Roenick and former Mets general manager Steve Phillips will also host shows on the new station, which launches Thursday. Phillips was fired as an ESPN analyst in October over an affair with a production assistant.
