​Drew Pearson is finding his way back on television, but he is not going to a broadcast booth or being added to the post-game analysis team. 

Instead he is going to appear on a soap opera. 

That's right, the legendary wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys, who has over 7,000 career receiving yards and 48 touchdowns, is obsessed with soap operas and has been since his playing days

His favorite soap is "The Young and The Restless", so naturally that is the show that Pearson will be appearing on. 

He could not be more excited about the role he is playing as well, saying, "The part they had me playing was a security guard, working for Victor Newman, which is perfect, because he's my hero." 

Pearson loved being on set, getting to hang out with the actors and actresses that he has spent countless hours watching on TV.
