Following 15 seasons with the New York Giants, the Pro Football Hall of Famer dipped his toes into the entertainment industry.
A year after his 2007 retirement from the NFL, Michael joined his fellow retired football players Curt Menefee, Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long, and Jimmie Johnson on Fox NFL as an analyst.
