The NFL landscape isn’t just going to look different this upcoming season, it is going to sound different as well. This offseason has seen many major names leave their long-established homes for seemingly greener pastures, and it’s not limited to the field.

Several major broadcasters are now with new networks despite years, even decades, with their previous ones. Specifically, Joe Buck and Troy Aikman both left FOX Sports to become the new voices of ESPN’s Monday Night Football. Filling their spots will be Greg Olsen and Kevin Burkhardt who are moving up from regional FOX broadcasts.

Meanwhile, NBC’s Al Michaels left Sunday Night Football, albeit not to retirement like many thought. Instead, he is now leading Thursday Night Football on Amazon Prime with Kirk Herbstreit of ESPN.

Of course, this isn’t stopping Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett from expressing interest in perhaps joining the booth one day.

Lockett has shown he has many interests outside football, including focusing on mental health concerns and even becoming a realtor.

It is common for former players to move to analyst roles and networks are willing to pay a premium for new, young talent to the industry. With Lockett taking a more vocal leadership role in the absence of Russell Wilson and Bobby Wagner, it does not seem too far fetched he might have his eyes set on more public roles once his playing days are complete.
