CBS parted ways with former Denver Broncos tight end Shannon Sharpe and former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino this week. Replacing them will be former tight end Tony Gonzalez who recently retired from the NFL and the Atlanta Falcons.

For Sharpe it comes at the end of his 10th year with the network, which hired him like Gonzalez after he retired in 2003.

“There’s no way I would ever complain,” Sharpe told Mike Klis of the Denver Post. “Am I sad and disappointed? Absolutely. But I’m grateful for the 10 years they did give me. They gave me the opportunity when I had no broadcasting experience. So I’m forever grateful what they did for me. I’ll be fine.”

He isn’t willing to call it a quits just yet, he is looking for a new television home.

“I’m going to work because I want to not because I have to. I can be a little more picky,” he said. “I don’t have to rush into anything because I’m under no financial strain or obligation. I’m going to weigh all my options.”
