From 1978 to 1988, Todd played in the NFL, then joined the cast of American Gladiators as the host! He only hosted for a year before deciding to head to become a sports announcer for both the NFL and NBC. He was absolutely one of the most loved players while on the field, and one of the most enjoyable announcers to listen to, after his retirement. Below are some reactions from fans who will miss Todd.
