The Green Bay Packers on Tuesday announced that Pro Football Hall of Fame receiver and Packers alumnus James Lofton has joined the Packers Television Network preseason broadcast team as color analyst.
Lofton, a veteran of 16 NFL seasons, including nine with Green Bay, joins play-by-play announcer Kevin Harlan in the preseason television booth. A first-round draft pick by the Packers in 1978, Lofton was an analyst for Sunday Night Football on Westwood One from 2009-16 before joining CBS Sports in 2017 as an analyst for the NFL on CBS. Lofton also spent time during his broadcast career with CNN and NBC Sports.
"I'm very excited to be a part of the Packers Television Network as a former player, as a broadcaster and as a fan," said Lofton. "Celebrating 100 seasons this year, the Packers are the most storied franchise in NFL history, and it's really exciting to get to watch the team you love so much."
