Terry Bradshaw parlayed a career as one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history into a second, even longer career as a television commentator and some-time actor. He is the only former NFL player to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
As a strong-armed quarterback at Louisiana Tech, Bradshaw was the first player chosen in the 1970 NFL draft by the then-lowly Pittsburgh Steelers. Over the next 14 seasons, Bradshaw anchored what became one of the greatest teams in NFL history. The 1970s Steelers won four Super Bowls in six years, and Bradshaw was named as the most valuable player in two of them.
Retiring from football after the 1983 season, the Louisiana native joined the CBS television network as a game analyst, where he worked for 10 years. In 1994, he jumped to Fox where he co-hosts Fox NFL Sunday and on camera pretends to be the resident redneck.
He has made cameo appearances in a host of TV shows, such as "Everybody Loves Raymond," "Married With Children," "Malcolm in the Middle" and "The Jeff Foxworthy Show." He also has had bit parts in the Burt Reynolds movies "Hooper," "Cannonball Run" and "Smokey and the Bandit II."
In his NFL career, Bradshaw threw 212 touchdown passes (versus 210 interceptions), completing 52% of his passes for 27,989 yards. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1989.
