Former All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman clearly has his sights set on becoming a contributor for a major media network. 

According to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post, Sherman had a tryout to be a game analyst for FOX Sports. He's not in the running for the No. 2 job though.

Sherman is, however, expected to be a studio analyst for Amazon's Thursday Night Football coverage. 

If Sherman shines in his studio role with Amazon, he could potentially call a game or two for FOX. 

Sherman has proven with his podcast for Pro Football Focus that he has what it takes to be a member of the media.  

Before he becomes a lead analyst for a major network, Sherman will have to work his way up the ladder. 

It'll be interesting to see how Sherman handles his transition from player to broadcaster.
