When Matthew Berry surprisingly left ESPN last month, it looked like he had another lucrative gig.
It appears that fantasy football analysts will continue to offer advice for a major network.
According to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post, Berry will join NBC Sports, where he is expected to contribute to the daily podcast again.
The Talented Mr Roto will reportedly host a fantasy football show which is likely to stream on Peacock.
He can also appear in Sunday Night Football.
Fantasy football was an idea on ESPN before Berry arrived in 2007.
He helped bring the sport to mainstream recognition through his writing columns, the Fantasy Focus Podcast and The Fantasy Show.
ESPN eventually gave him a great platform to discuss fantasy on Sunday NFL Countdown and other company programming.
Per Marchand, Berry's new NBC show may air when ESPN plays its former studio show,
Fantasy Football Now, Sunday Morning.
While Marchand did not say whether Berry would take on the writing role,
It's possible that he moves his weekly love/hate column and Precision Draft Manifesto to the NBC Sports Edge.
He entered the fantasy industry by writing for the site,
Then known as Rotoworld, from 1999 to 2003 as a side hustle.
Neither Berry nor NBC have confirmed his alleged recruitment.
