Troy Aikman wants a raise.If Fox Sports wants Aikman to call "Thursday Night Football" on top of his traditional Sunday afternoon gameduties, theformer Cowboys quarterback wants to be compensated,sources tell Sporting News.NFL DRAFT:Sign up to stream the NFL Draft New York Jets Custom Game Jersey LIVE on DAZN in Canada The popular, critically respected Aikman has a goodargument given the way Fox and ESPN recently slobbered overPeyton Manning for Thursday Night and "Monday Night Football" duties. Entranced by Manning's appeal to Middle America, they were willing to pay him up to $10 milliona year, SN reported in March. Manningturned them down because he didn't want to be a "critic" ongames involving brother Eli, according to ProFootballTalk.With Manning out of the picture, at least for this season,Foxis asking Aikman and Joe Buck to callits newly acquired "Thursday Night Football" package on top of their usual Sunday afternoon game duties. With Buck also calling the MLB playoffs and Word Series this fall, the duo are expected to cherry-pick the best TNF games and let other Fox announcers call some games here and there.Both, however, are well aware how working Thursdays and Sundays burned out their TNF contemporaries at CBSand NBCthe past few seasons.Moreover, Aikman is being asked Keyshawn Johnson Jersey toco-star on Fox's first NFL Draft simulcastThursday night, with NFL Network's Rich Eisen and Mike Mayock.The 25th season of @NFLonFOX includes Thursday Night Football, America's Game of the Week, FOX NFL SUNDAY and much, much more: FOX Sports PR (@FOXSportsPR) April 20, 2018 Fox celebrated big time after taking TNF away from rivals CBS and NBC with a five-year, $3.3 billion contract agreement in January.Network executives announced last week theirnew pregame show, which will air on both Fox and NFL Network, will be headlined by Terry Bradshaw, Michael Strahan and Howie Long.Stars of their caliber don't take on additional duties for free.NFL DRAFT:Latest SN Mock Draft | What we're hearing "Doubling salary might be tough," said a source,"but a 50 percentraise? That sounds fair."Landing the three Pro Football Hall of Famerswas a key to making Fox's inaugural TNF show "appointment viewing," said Eric Shanks, president and executive producer for Fox Sports, who added,"Terry, Howie and Michael, along with our partners at NFL Network, will set the weekly tone."So where does that leave Aikman and Buck, who are entering their 17th season together and are the NFL's longest-running broadcast Men's Sam Darnold Game Jersey team? Well, if Manning's not getting that eight-figure salary, Fox's on-air NFL talentwants management to reward the loyal troops who've turned"America's Game of the Week" and the "Fox NFL Sunday" into the nation's No. 1overall TV show and pregame show. When Aikman, 51, was asked about Manning's po sible$10 million payday, he made some revealing comments to TMZ Sports ."That means I'm worth a little more becauseI'm doing more games than he is," noted Aikman, who quarterbacked the Cowboys to three Super Bowl titles.Would Aikmanask for a raise if a networkthrew big bucks at Manning?"Yeah, why not?" he replied.Fox declined Lachlan Edwards Jersey to comment for this story and Aikman could not be reached, but theNew York Post reportedFox is hoping to finalize a TNF deal with Aikman and Buck by May.The time may beright for Aikman to use someleverage. During aninterview onMatt Mosley and Ed Werder's Cowboys-focused"Doomsday Podcast," he floated the idea of leaving broadcasting to follow in the footsteps of John Elway of the Broncos as an NFL general manager.Aikman noted he joinedFox directly afterretiring from the NFL in 2000. With five Super Bowls and nearly 20 years in the broadcast booth under his belt and his daughters soon heading off to college, he says he finds the idea of running a franchise intriguing.I think itd be something Id be really good at it," said Aikman. "The challenge Sam Darnold Jersey of it would be the most compelling part. As a player I had beliefs of how a team should be run, the type of players that would be required.Are you listening, Fox?
