James Lofton is the lead game analyst for Westwood One’s coverage of Sunday Night Football. 2016 marks his eighth straight year in that role.
Lofton joined the network in 2000, but left for coaching stints with the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders for seven years before returning in 2009. His previous broadcast stints included both CNN and NBC Sports.
James was the No. 1 draft pick of the Green Bay Packers in 1978, beginning a long career as an NFL wide receiver. In 16 seasons playing for Green Bay, the Los Angeles Raiders, Buffalo Bills, Los Angeles Rams and the Philadelphia Eagles, Lofton caught 764 passes for 14,004 yards, which was the most in NFL history at the time of his retirement. In 13 playoff games, Lofton caught 41 passes for 759 yards and eight touchdowns, including a seven-reception game in Super Bowl XXVI. He was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2003.
