Troy Aikman is a wanted man.
Amazon Prime Video is looking to team NBC’s Sunday Night Football play-by-play announcer Al Michaels alongside Fox NFL game analyst Troy Aikman when the streaming service becomes the exclusive home for Thursday Night Football in 2022.
Michael McCarthy of Front Office Sports provided the report a few days ago.
“If Amazon is able to land Aikman, the Pro Football Hall of Famer would likely team with play-by-play announcer Al Michaels to form a ‘TNF’ dream team,’” McCarthy writes.
Andrew Marchand of New York Post wrote back in September that he believed there was a 90 percent chance Michaels, whose contract with NBC runs out in 2022, ends up joining Amazon.
Amazon is paying $1 billion per year for the 2022-2032 seasons to exclusively stream TNG games, per Alex Sherman of CNBC.
