The iconic duo of Shannon Sharpe and Skip Bayless is coming to an end since the former Denver Broncos tight end is set to leave Fox Network in June. According to multiple reports, Sharpe has reached a buyout agreement with Fox Sports to leave the network. His last appearance on the show will be after the NBA finals which is set to conclude in June.
After a successful run of almost 8 years, Shannon Sharpe will be leaving Undisputed in a few days. He will be a free agent in the sports media world and will certainly have a lot of options to explore. The reason for the sudden departure is unknown but there are many speculations and rumors about why Sharpe might be leaving Fox Network.
People believe Skip Bayless‘ insensitive tweet about Damar Hamlin‘s horrific incident back in December might be the reason for their fallout. Sharpe implied that it would be a good idea to delete that tweet but Bayless stood by his words and refused to take down his tweet. Besides, Bayless once took a blatant shot at Sharpe while defending Tom Brady’s abysmal outing in the 2022 season.
It seems like the iconic Denver Broncos tight end had enough of his co-host Skip Bayless. Amidst this, Sharpe recently liked some tweets from his profile that called Bayless a “Piece of sh*t” and claimed Sharpe is “Far Superior” to Bayless.
Furthermore, he also liked a tweet that mentioned that Bayless did not appreciate the professionalism and hard work of the former Pro Bowl tight end Sharpe. It seems like Sharpe and Bayless are ending their partnership in a rough way.
