And TMZ says his ex girlfriend and baby mama Lauren Sanchez is in the running as well. Both were in New York City yesterday at "View" studios, according to TMZ. Sanchez, a host on "Good Day L.A.," guest hosted last week.

Tony, 38, was a tight end who retired last year after five seasons with the Falcons and 12 seasons prior to that with the Kansas City Chiefs, wrapping what many consider a Hall of Fame career.

Tony is a CBS pre-game analyst and recently filmed a guest role on "NCIS."
