Newest 'Survivor' tribe member: Jimmy Johnson?
Apparently he's looking for another challenge.
ESPNDallas.com is reporting that Johnson is slated to become a contestant on "Survivor: Nicaragua," the 21st season of the CBS reality television show, this fall.
The taping of the show is not expected to interfere with his job as an NFL analyst on Fox.
Other former Cowboys have also taken the reality show route. Running back Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin appeared on "Dancing With the Stars" and quarterback Gary Hogeboom competed on "Survivor: Guatemala."
Not sure how long Johnson will last -- there are a lot of physical demands and he is 67, but personality can go a long way on the show as well.
Let's just hope the tribe keeps him around long enough so we can see what his hair looks like after a few days (or more) in the wild.
