Troy Aikman Has One Foot Out the Door at Fox: Troy Aikman is likely to leave Fox to become the main analyst for Monday Night Football on ESPN, the New York Post reports. Al Michaels is close to joining Amazon Prime's Thursday Night Football and hoped Aikman would join him. There's a lot of talk about other moves these would cause and so far none of them involve Chris Collinsworth.

Joe Buck: "Analyst...is...GONE!"

The broadcast salaries are getting mighty generous and could entice more than a few Sean McVay types to leave the sidelines.

Someday maybe all the noteworthy players and coaches will be in the booth, and we'll end up having to watch Pat Shurmur coach Nathan Peterman.

Hard to know where Collinsworth would end up. Also, is anyone biding their time waiting to hire Gruden if/when some of his radioactive glow recedes.

Wherever Collinsworth lands he'll see the greatest players who have ever taken the field.

Still prefer Romo as an analyst over Aikman and Collinsworth. Just comes across as less self serving and more genuine with a better read on the game.

Nobody will ever match John Madden. Ever.
