According to a report by the New York Post, ESPN is contemplating a pursuit of Al Michaels to join Troy Aikman in the "Monday Night Football" booth.

The broadcasting legend is said to be in negotiations with Amazon Prime Video to broadcast "Thursday Night Football."  That was thought to be Aikman's destination as well before ESPN swooped in.

From NY Post:

ESPN is contemplating a pursuit of legendary play-by-player Al Michaels for “Monday Night Football,” The Post has learned.

No final decision on whether to fully engage Michaels has been made, according to sources.

ESPN declined comment.

The potential interest in returning Michaels, 77, to his TV football home — he was the longtime voice of MNF — comes as Michaels is deep into negotiations with Amazon Prime Video about becoming the main voice of its exclusive “Thursday Night Football” package that begins next fall, according to sources.

I don't care where Michaels ends up so long as he is calling games next season.  I need my Al Michaels fix every week.  Getting him to join Aikman in the booth would be genius move.  Aikman is trash and Michaels would make the MNF broadcast listenable.
