Shannon Sharpe has pro response for question about Tony Gonzalez replacing him

It’s bad enough to lose your job, period. It stings even more when the person who is taking your spot on TV is the same guy who also took your spot in NFL history as the top receiving tight end in history (in terms of career stats). But Shannon Sharpe is handling things like a pro.

Sharpe answered many questions on Twitter Tuesday, the same day it was announced that he and Dan Marino would be leaving CBS’ “The NFL Today” in favor of Tony Gonzalez. One question was about how it felt to lose his job to Gonzalez, which has to be a sore spot. Sharpe had a good attitude about it and didn’t let on that he was bothered.

Sharpe also maintains positive feelings for CBS.

I’ll be honest — I’ve always felt CBS’ pregame show was sub-par and that Sharpe and Marino were two of the biggest reasons why, so I think this is a good move for them. But I really have to commend Sharpe for his positive attitude. It’s never easy losing your job, particularly to the same guy who surpasses you on the career receptions and receptions yards records for a tight end.
