‘Elementary’ season 3 spoilers: Sherlock’s ties to … Phil Simms?

Elementary -We know that CBS is making a big deal right now out of their attempts to find cameos for NFL greats on some of their shows, but are they taking this to ridiculous levels? At times, it seems to think so.

The network announced today that Phil Simms will be guest-starring on the November 13 episode of “Elementary” season 3 in a role he should be fairly familiar with by now: Himself. Specifically, he has some sort of history with Jonny Lee Miller’s Sherlock Holmes, and this will be something that is played up and expounded upon as he shows off a “little-known talent.”

For those of you who bemoan these sort of cameos, remember here that you are most-likely not going to be seeing Simms for an extremely long period of time. It will most likely just be for a few seconds and then he will be on his merry way. The big surprise to us here mostly is just the sole fact that his appearance is coming at a time after Thursday Night Football is over on CBS. Wasn’t this the real reason that all of these were booked in the first place? We have a very hard time thinking that the network needs any help at all promoting their upcoming Sunday broadcasts, given that they are more popular than almost anything in the known world already.

We will have some further scoop related to “Elementary” in the weeks ahead, so be on the lookout for more.
