FOX Interested in NFL Carolina Panther Greg Olsen For XFL Gig

Two weeks ago, we reported that both FOX and ESPN had settled on their main broadcasting teams. Steve Levy, Dan Orlovsky, and Pat McAfee will be part of ESPN’s broadcast team. Curt Menefee and Joel Klatt will have broadcast duties on FOX.

Menefee confirmed the news today via Twitter.

The past weekend current Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen took part in broadcast duties for the New York Giants vs. Arizona Cardinals game on FOX. He worked alongside play-by-play man Kenny Albert. The former NFL Pro Bowler was on his team’s bye week.

Andrew Marchand of the New York Post is reporting that;

“For Olsen, his next stop in broadcasting could be with Fox on the XFL as there is some interest in having Olsen work games as part of its XFL coverage. This would provide Olsen more reps, if he chooses to retire from playing, on his pathway to being an NFL game analyst beginning next season. Fox and Olsen haven’t had talks about the XFL yet, but they are expected to shortly.”

A current NFL player calling XFL games would provide an exciting twist to covering the league. Not only is the XFL a stepping stone for football players trying to land a potential spot on an NFL roster, but it could also do the same for up and coming broadcasters. Olsen’s name has been rumored to be part of the Monday Night Football broadcast team.
