Troy Aikman may be calling a new network home coming this upcoming season.
On Wednesday, The NY Post reported that Aikman is on the verge of leaving Fox Sports and signing on with ESPN’s Monday Night Football.
Via the report:
“ESPN is deep in negotiations with Fox Sports’ Troy Aikman to make him its lead analyst on “Monday Night Football,” The Post has learned.
Aikman’s deal is not completed yet, but there is an expectation that it will be finalized.
The exact figures of Aikman’s deal are not yet fully finalized, but for him to leave Fox it is expected to be comparable to or exceed Tony Romo’s 10-year $180 million with CBS.”
The report also added that Aikman has also been courted by Amazon.
If Aikman does leave, the only question remains is who will be his partner in crime. ESPN could also try to team Al Michaels with Aikman, but he has been in serious negotiations to be the lead play-by-player on Amazon.
