Michael Strahan could be candidate to replace Troy Aikman on FOX
Could the Michael Strahan media empire soon be expanding?
Following a shuffle of play-by-play and in-game analysts, Strahan very well could stand to benefit. In fact, there is a growing belief that he may end up replacing Troy Aikman, who left FOX for ESPN, and entering the booth this coming season.
Jason Whitlock reports that FOX is now considering a one-two punch of Strahan and Al Michaels in 2022 and beyond. Whitlock is a former FOX Sports TV personality.
Interesting nugget: Troy Aikman's longtime agent, Jordan Bazant, left WME a few months ago to take a job at Fox Sports. You'd think he was hired to help retain Aikman? Fox will consider pairing Al Michaels with Michael Strahan in the booth. Network has 2 of next 3 Super Bowls

Since his retirement following the 2007 season, Strahan has made quite the name for himself in the media world. He currently serves as a co-host for Good Morning America and FOX NFL Sunday, as well as hosting The $100,000 Pyramid. He’s also found his way into the movie production business and owns his own clothing line.
There are several pieces that need to fall into place but at least early on, it looks like Aikman and Joe Buck will be calling games for ESPN, and potentially Strahan and Michaels for FOX.
