CBS Sports has added another former Chiefs star to its stable of analysts.

Former Chiefs quarterback Trent Green will join CBS Sports as an NFL game analyst this season, announced Sean McManus, chairman of CBS Sports.

Earlier this year, the network hired former Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez as an analyst for its pregame studio show. And another former Chiefs quarterback, Rich Gannon, is a CBS game analyst.

Green will contribute across multiple CBS Sports platforms including CBS Sports Network’s “NFL Monday QB” and Sunday pregame show, “That Other Pregame Show.”

“Trent’s experience and knowledge of the game, success as an NFL studio analyst and radio broadcaster, combined with his contemporary take on today’s NFL, make him a perfect fit to an already deep roster,” McManus said. “We are excited for Trent to join the CBS Sports family.”

Green is filling a vacancy left by the departure of Dan Dierdorf, who retired after the 2013 season. Green’s play-by-play partner has not been determined.

After his 15-year playing career ended in 2008, Green spent the 2009 season working as an NFL analyst on regional games for Fox as well as a studio analyst for NFL Network’s “NFL Total Access.” He has spent the last few years working on Thursday night football radio broadcasts on Westwood One as well as Chiefs preseason telecasts.
