Former American Football Tight End, Co-Host of "Skip and Shannon: Undisputed"

Shannon Sharpe is a former American football tight end who played for the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens of the NFL, as well as a former analyst for CBS Sports on its NFL telecasts. He is currently a TV presenter who co-hosts Skip and Shannon: Undisputed with Skip Bayless and Joy Taylor.

He was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and inducted on August 6, 2011. Sharpe played 12 seasons for the Broncos (1990–99, 2002–03) and two years with the Ravens (2000–01), winning three Super Bowls and finishing his career as the NFL’s all-time leader in receptions (815), receiving yards (10,060) and receiving touchdowns (62) by a tight end until Tony Gonzalez surpassed all three of these records, including breaking his total yardage record on October 5, 2008. Sharpe holds the distinction of being the first tight end ever to amass over 10,000 receiving yards. Shannon was also named a member of the NFL's first team All-Decade team of the 1990s.

Sharpe was drafted in the 7th round of the 1990 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos. He remained with Denver until 1999, winning two championship rings in Super Bowl XXXII and Super Bowl XXXIII in the process. After the 1997 season championship, his first, he appeared on General Mills' Wheaties boxes with four other Broncos. After a two-year stint with the Baltimore Ravens, where he won another championship ring in Super Bowl XXXV, he returned to the Broncos. He played there until 2003, when he retired.
