FOX is still trying to lure Peyton Manning into the Thursday Night Football booth, but the network wants to have a role for its lead Sunday analyst on Thursdays as well. The New York Post reports that FOX wants Troy Aikman to work on its Thursday night pregame show, giving Aikman another high-profile role in addition to his job as the top commentator on FOX’s Sunday afternoon games. The NFL’s previous Thursday night partners, CBS and NBC, have used their lead Sunday announcers on Thursday nights as well.
