Bradshaw opened up about his various health issues last year and revealed that he had been diagnosed with cancer.

The four-time Super Bowl winner is now cancer-free and led an all-star panel that included Michael Strahan and Jimmy Johnson.

At the start of the show, he showed off some dance moves, keeping up with the younger members of the Fox Sports family.

However, fans were concerned after he confused a number of players and teams when presenting highlights on the postgame show.

NFL fans are adamant that Terry Bradshaw “tried to kiss Rob Gronkowski” in the Fox studio.

Bradshaw seemed unable to keep up with what was happening on screen as he reviewed the Jacksonville Jaguars’ game against the Indianapolis Colts.

After mixing up a number of player names, Bradshaw said: “I know, I got it. I’m so proud of myself.”

“Where did that come from? These highlights were everywhere.

“Sorry, sports fans.”

He moved on to the next section but continued to struggle as he reviewed the Cincinnati Bengals’ shock loss to the Cleveland Browns.

Bradshaw continued: “This is hard. I messed up a bit. But it’s the first show.”

Fans were quick to send their support to the Hall of Famer, who made it to the end of the highlights package without any further issues.

One wrote: “Is [it] Time to end his watch? This man is a hero for America, he has done so much for football [but] It’s time to retire in peace.

Another said: “Terry Bradshaw has a hard time.”

While a third added: “Terry Bradshaw was way off the mark in all those highlight recaps…more so than usual.”

And a fourth said: “I love Terry Bradshaw. So I hope someone close to him can convince him that it’s time to hang up the lapel mic.”

Bradshaw is one of the greatest NFL players of all time, winning the league’s MVP award in 1978.

He spent 14 years with the Steelers, rushing for 27,989 yards and 212 touchdowns.

In October 2022, Bradshaw announced his shocking cancer diagnosis and the NFL world rallied around him.

He said: “In November [2021]I was diagnosed with bladder cancer.

“I went to Yale University Medical Center – surgery, treatment.

“As of today I am free of bladder cancer. That’s the good news.”

“Then in March I felt good. I had a bad neck. I’m doing an MRI. Now we find a tumor in my left neck.”

“It is a Merkel cell tumor, a rare form of skin cancer. So I had this surgery done at MD Anderson in Houston.”

“Guys, I may not look like myself anymore, but I feel like me.

“I’m cancer free, I’m doing great. And in time I’ll be back to where I normally am.”
