Chris Broussard Awkwardly Brings Up O.J. Simpson When Discussing Cowboys Running Back Situation

FOX Sports 1’s Chris Broussard raised a few eyebrows when discussing the Dallas Cowboys running back situation.

While discussing the team’s interest in Steelers running back Najee Harris, the longtime NBA analyst and FS1 co-host threw out the name of O.J. Simpson while attempting to make a point about Harris.

I would’ve loved to see them have gotten Derrick Henry. But if not a ‘star’ … how ’bout just a ‘star-ter?’ I mean, seriously… is Rico Dowdle, Deuce Vaughn, Zeke Elliott at this point star-ters? That’s why the Najee Harris stuff makes sense. I’m not saying he’s O.J. Simpson but you could put him in ther— [chuckles] … I’m just sayin’ a legitimately good running back.

Here’s the clip:

Simpson recently passed away at the age of 76 after his battle with cancer.


The disgraced Hall of Fame running back was acquitted of double-murder in 1995 but was found civilly liable two years alter and ordered to pay $33.5 million to the families of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend, Ron Goldman.

It was a little confusing for Broussard to bring up O.J. Simpson’s name, who when mentioned, typically isn’t related to football.
