What does Joe Theismann read?

In honor of the first regular season game of Monday Night Football--Minnesota visits Washington--here's an item about what Joe Theismann, one of MNF's broadcast team, reads:
I enjoy James Patterson's books. I try to stay up on the National Football League [so] I read USA Today; I like to look at People
magazine to see what's happening [in entertainment], and I read The Wall Street Journal on occasion. I like [thriller novelist] Brad Meltzer, too.
Theismann led the Washington Redskins to a Super Bowl win in 1983. He also played a stint in the Canadian Football League for the Toronto Argonauts but it seems he's not remembered as fondly there as in Washington. He has been an NFL TV analyst since 1988.
