Shannon Sharpe and Stephen A. Smith on First Take could be coming to a screen near you very soon. Maybe.

Bro Bible reporter Dov Kleiman is reporting that Sharpe has had conversations about becoming a high-profile ‘contributor’ position opposite at ESPN. The move would allow Sharpe to be part of a rotating cast of stars to debate Smith on First Take. 

Stephen A Smith quoted Kleiman’s tweet on Wednesday afternoon and alluded to discussing the situation. 

“Look for me on Friday, Folks! I’ll be addressing all the things I need to address,” Smith tweeted. “Back on “The Stephen A. Smith Show” podcast on Friday — then LIVE on  @FirstTake Monday morning. See y’all in a minute. Buckle Up!!!

“Whatcha addressing on Fri? “Sharpe tweeted at Smith. “I’ve got some free time so feel free  2 FT me b4 my meetings.”

He concluded the tweet with a seemingly endless array of popcorn emojis.

Sharpe, a Savannah State University alumnus, announced earlier this summer that he would be leaving FS1’s ‘Undisputed’ where he debated Skip Bayless for years. Stephen A Smith, a Winston-Salem State alumnus, also boosted his career across from Bayless.
