Jenny Dell Lands Job with CBS to Cover NFL

Jenny Dell, former ballpark correspondent for NESN’s Red Sox games, officially announced that she would be leaving the television channel for a position working with CBS.

Dell will be a sideline reporter for NFL games televised by CBS. Last week, news broke about Dell officially parting ways with NESN.  Tuesday it was announced that she would be working for CBS.

Dell is one of three sideline reporters scheduled to work at CBS for the football season. She will work with the top two football broadcast teams Jim Nantz and Phil Simms, and Ian Eagle and Dann Fouts.

In January NESN took Dell off on-the-field broadcast duties. The public believed she was relieved of her ballpark duties after she and Red Sox third-baseman, Will Middlebrooks, made their relationship public on New Year’s Eve after posting a picture of the two together on Twitter. This may be part of the reason she was moved to another part of the NESN organization. Sources also say that Dell fielded inquiries from Fox Sports 1 and Turner Sports, asking her to work for them. Entertaining these offers is a conflict of interest based on the contract she signed with NESN.

The question on some Red Sox fans’ minds is: what does this mean for Will Middlebrooks once football coverage begins in August and September? It is difficult to say with the approaching draft deadline and the Red Sox needing to off load players that have been underperforming at the plate. This season Middlebrooks hit .197/.305/.324 over 71 plate appearances.

Right now, Middlebrooks is on the disabled list, again, with a fractured finger. Perhaps a change of scenery would benefit Middlebrooks, too.

Either way, the couple has many changes to consider in the coming months.
