Former NFL Defensive Player of the Year Jason Taylor and longtime NFL coach Kevin Gilbride will join Mike Florio and new co-host and veteran NFL commentator Paul Burmeister to discuss the hottest NFL topics this season on "Pro Football Talk," NBCSN's weekday NFL news program. In addition, Mike Ryan, who boasts 26 NFL seasons of athletic training experience, will join "Pro Football Talk" to provide perspective on injuries and sports medicine.

For the first time, the show will feature consistent daily guest appearances by NBC Sports football analysts. Beginning the week of Sept. 8, Tony Dungy will appear every Tuesday throughout the season; Hines Ward on Wednesdays; Cris Collinsworth on Thursdays; and Doug Flutie on Fridays. Taylor will appear every Monday as well as other days of the week.

The new additions mean "Pro Football Talk" will draw upon a combined eight Super Bowl titles and 169 seasons of NFL experience from its analysts to provide viewers with wide-ranging perspectives during the 2014 NFL season.

Long-time "PFT" contributors and former NFL players Ross Tucker and Jon Ritchie will both continue to appear on the program regularly. Former NFL players Takeo Spikes and Brian Westbrook, who have appeared on the show in the past, also will continue to be regular contributors.

Launched in 2012, "Pro Football Talk" airs at 5:30 p.m. ET every Monday through Friday.
