(April 10, 2006) -- NFL Network announced an additional 18 episodes of its acclaimed series In Their Own Words which returns for its third season beginning April 11 with more insight and depth on some of the NFL's most compelling subjects.

The third season features 18 original episodes using rare interviews, archival action footage and exclusive sound captured on the field, on the sidelines and in the locker room, to tell a story in his own words, without the use of a host or narration.
In Their Own Words gives fans unprecedented access to NFL personalities as they reveal their intensity, humor, and humanity in each 30 or 60 minute episode.
