Michael Irvin, Tim Tebow To Join Stephen A. Smith On “First Take” Following Max Kellerman Departure

Michael Irvin and Tim Tebow will be getting a run at debating Stephen A. Smith on ESPN’s “First Take”.

Earlier in the week, the “First Take” squad said goodbye to Max Kellerman, as he will now be off his long time gig across Smith on the popular show.


On Thursday, it was announced that Tim Tebow and Michael Irvin would be filling in with Stephen A. Smith on “First Take” on a part-time basis.

First Take was quick to tease the idea of Michael Irvin hashing it out with his “nemesis” Stephen A. Smith once a week.

I think it’s safe to say that adding some A-listers such as Michael Irvin and Tim Tebow alongside the popular, yet sometimes controversial, Stephen A. Smith will provide some life to “First Take”.

No offense to Max Kellerman, but it was his time to move off the program.
