Fox Sports’ Daryl Johnston, an NFL game analyst for Fox Sports dating back to 2001, will be joining NFL Network’s NFL Total Access show as a studio analyst.

Although he would a very nice replacement for game analyst Matt Millen who was the big bucket of suck last season. Anyway, here’s the press release from NFL Network.
