CBS is reportedly making a big change to its NFL pregame show.

According to a report by The Big Lead, former NFL wide receiver Nate Burleson is joining CBS and will become a part of the network's pregame show on Sundays. He'll be taking the place of former NFL linebacker Bart Scott.

It's unclear what Scott's new role within the network will be.

From The Big Lead:

Burleson will join James Brown, Bill Cowher, Boomer Esiason and recently announced analyst Phil Simms. Bart Scott is no longer part of the show, CBS confirmed. A spokesperson told The Big Lead other possibilities within the network are being discussed for Scott, who joined The NFL Today in 2014.

CBS announced the addition of Burleson on Twitter.
