Former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf is joining SiriusXM for regular talk show appearances, according to the Associated Press.

Leaf, the former No. 2 overall pick in the 1998 draft, played just just three years in the NFL, two with the San Diego Chargers and one with the Dallas Cowboys.

He threw for 655 yards, 14 touchdowns and 36 interceptions with a career record of 4-17.

He was a Heisman Trophy finalist in 1997 with Washington State and eventually served prison time for burglary and drug chargers during his struggles with substance abuse.

Leaf will reportedly debut on August 16 at 1 p.m. ET with Jason Horowitz and appear multiple times each week throughout the college football season.

Andrew has been a sports writer since 2010, featured on Bleacher Report, 247Sports, Fansided and elsewhere. His work has also been seen on MSN, Forbes and in the LA Times. Andrew coached high school football for five years and writes about football, and just about anything, for Fanbuzz.
