With Jason Witten practically being forced back into football after being heavily criticized as his role as a broadcaster, ESPN opted to keep Joe Tessitore and move the third wheel Booger McFarland into the color commentator role.
That’s hasn’t exactly done wonders.
McFarland, filled with generalities and statements that just simply don’t make sense, has turned himself into a meme on social media.
Now, it appears both he and Tessitore could be on thin ice.
According to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post, the network is considering moving on from the duo next season, especially with the exit of longtime producer Jay Rothman.

Marchand notes that ESPN may try to land the fan-favorite Tony Romo, but will have to shell out if they want to pry him away from CBS with the former QB reportedly seeking over $10 million per year for his services.
All-time great QB Peyton Manning and current Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen are other names being thrown around as possible replacements.
