NFL broadcaster changes; Al Michaels, Kirk Herbstreit, Joe Buck, Troy Aikman

1. It appears that the NFL broadcasting shuffle is just about over. Where do we stand? What have we learned? Here are some thoughts and answers to questions you may have about all the moving around that’s happened over the past few weeks.

– Al Michaels and Kirk Herbstreit will call Thursday Night Football for Amazon beginning this season. The New York Post‘s Andrew Marchand reported Monday that after Joe Buck left Fox for ESPN, Michaels’s representative’s reached out to Fox to see whether there was interest. There was not. Sources told me the same thing, which might be a little surprising given that Fox has two of the next three Super Bowls, but the network is clearly ready to elevate the excellent Kevin Burkhardt into its No. 1 slot.
