Could Richard Sherman be teaming up with Skip Bayless on the set of Undisputed? According to the New York Post’s Andrew Marchand, the former NFL All-Pro cornerback has emerged as a co-host candidate to replace the outgoing Shannon Sharpe on FS1’s Undisputed.

Sherman, who worked on Amazon’s first season of producing Thursday Night Football, reportedly met with Bayless about joining forces. Per Marchand, the two sides convened at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.

There are apparently no hard feelings as sources witnessed Sherman and Bayless meeting at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills on Wednesday about the idea of teaming up.

Undisputed is currently on hiatus after Sharpe departed the show. Sharpe appeared on the FS1 program for several years, but at the beginning of 2023, the pair seemed destined for a split. The relationship was at an “all-time low” at one point. It wasn’t difficult to tell when the two disagreed, and so Fox eventually bought the Pro Football Hall of Famer’s contract out.

The former Super Bowl Champion and Bayless engaged in an infamous debate on ESPN’s First Take a decade ago. Bayless also recalled the encounter with Sherman as recently as last year. He didn’t have particularly good things to say at the time:

He personally attacked me,” Bayless recalled on his podcast. “Unrelentingly attacked me. So much for ‘please no controversy today.’ I immediately felt ambushed, bushwhacked, set up, blindsided. I was suddenly…forced to fight without fighting. I had to defend myself with both hands tied behind my back.”

And because of that, the sports world offered their thoughts on Sherman and Bayless potentially teaming up on social media:

We’ll have to see how this plays out, but Sherman and Bayless could make for an interesting duo.
