FOX has yet to settle on a complete No. 1 NFL announcing booth for the 2022 season.

Kevin Burkhardt will be replacing Joe Buck as the play-by-play man, but the Troy Aikman replacement hasn't been picked yet.

According to Front Office Sports, FOX is considering a surprising move.

"NEWS: For the first time in nearly 20 years, Fox Sports might create a 3-person TV booth for its lead NFL broadcast team," Michael McCarthy tweeted.

From the report:

Among the contenders are Greg Olsen, who worked with Burkhardt on the No. 2 NFL team in 2021, Super Bowl-winning coach Sean Payton and ex-Fox analyst John Lynch.

Fox would like to hand the No. 1 job to Michael Strahan of the “Fox NFL Sunday” pregame show, said sources. But Strahan is probably not interested due to his anchoring job with ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

Stay tuned.
