Amazon’s lineup of talent for “TNF” already includes Al Michaels, Kirk Herbstreit, Tony Gonzalez and Charissa Thompson. The streaming giant has clearly gone out of its way to add some huge names to the lineup.
The future of NFL games is now set to look like this:
CBS: Jim Nantz and Tony Romo
FOX: Kevin Burkhardt and Tom Brady (once done playing)
NBC: Mike Tirico and Cris Collinsworth
ESPN: Joe Buck and Troy Aikman
Amazon: Al Michaels and Kirk Herbstreit

A streaming service getting an entire slate of NFL games is a huge deal, and expectations are through the roof for Amazon. Given the amount of talent being signed on, Amazon is intent on impressing people.

While I’ve certainly had disagreements with some of the stuff Richard Sherman has done, he’s a hell of a football player and he’s also incredibly smart.
He’s the perfect guy you want on the team if you’re focused on growing a football brand.
