The report from FOS comes not long after The sun reports that there is already a ‘scramble’ among various broadcasters to win his services, which could reportedly fetch him around $5 million a year.
‘When you watch him speak on his podcast, you see someone who speaks very well into a microphone and is very forthright about his opinions,’ a source told The Sun.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefterhe told his teammates he was retiring after that game, although he has yet to publicly confirm his decision.
The center was still at the top of his game in 2023, earning a first-team All-Pro nod for the sixth time.
Recently, however, he has been a proud supporter of his brother, attending the Chiefs’ last two games in Buffalo and Baltimore.
He will be at Allegiant Stadium again and is expected to sit with Taylor Swift’s family in a suite that Travis paid ‘well over $1 million’ for.
