Randy Moss is officially an NFL analyst for Fox Sports 1, as part of 'Fox Football Daily'

Scott Fujita, Brian Urlacher and Ronde Barber will also be on the show, but you all know why you're reading this.

You're bound to see more than a few "Straight cash, homie" jokes this week, as Randy Moss is back in the public eye.

Fox Sports announced something that had been rumored since Friday: Moss will join Fox Sports 1 as an NFL analyst. The former wide receiver will contribute to Fox Football Daily and Fox NFL Kickoff, two brand new NFL-themed shows that FS1 will debut this year.

Moss was part of a larger announcement of the cast for the two shows. Joining him will be hosts Curt Menefee and Mike Hill, fellow analysts Ronde Barber, Brian Urlacher and Scott Fujita, as well as network rules analyst Mike Pereira and college football analyst Joel Klatt. Insider extraordinaire Jay Glazer will have an increased presence on the two shows. Current Fox NFL Sunday regulars Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long, Jimmy Johnson, Troy Aikman, Michael Strahan and John Lynch will also appear on the two shows.

"Great players step off the playing field every year, but I'm confident in saying that no network has ever been able to add four former players of this caliber at one time as Fox Sports 1 has," said Fox Sports executive producer John Entz. "Add the names Urlacher, Moss, Barber and Fujita to Bradshaw, Long, Johnson, Strahan, Aikman, Lynch and our many other top-flight football analysts and it's easy to see our quality and depth."

Fox Football Daily will air for an hour Monday-Friday at 6 p.m. ET, and provide a daily look at both the NFL and college football. The show premieres Aug. 19. Fox NFL Kickoff will air at 11 a.m. ET on NFL Sundays and serve as a pre-cursor to the network's Fox NFL Sunday pre-game show. Fox Sports executive producer Bill Richards said on a conference call today that the network would utilize game sites that Fox is broadcasting, at least moreso than Fox NFL Sunday.

In something that is surely not a coincidence, all three of the show's new big hires played in the NFL as late as last season, meaning they will have a big connection to the modern game. Aside from Ray Lewis, ESPN didn't make any huge NFL hires this season, so it'll be interesting to see the difference between the two networks' brand of football talk.
