Derrick Gunn says he had talks about returning to NBC Sports Philadelphia; deal couldn't be reached


Derrick Gunn -- the face of Philadelphia Eagles coverage on Comcast SportsNet for a generation -- says he had talks with the network now referred to as NBC Sports Philadelphia about a potential return.

In the end, a deal couldn't be reached. Still, Gunn seems to be thankful that his long-time employer reached out about a potential reunion:

It's unclear what role NBC Sports Philadelphia and Gunn discussed. Certainly, his post-game interviews outside the Eagles' locker room -- specifically with Brandon Graham -- have been missed over the last two years.

However, it's possible that the network envisioned him as part of their pre and postgame coverage. Ray Didinger retired from both NBC Sports Philadelphia and SportsRadio 94 WIP in May. Seth Joyner announced earlier this week that he won't return to NBC this season. So there are two chairs open on Eagles Postgame Live in 2022.
