Brett Favre reportedly blew his 'Monday Night Football' audition

Brett Favre reportedly blew his 'Monday Night Football' audition

Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre recently auditioned for a spot in ESPN's Monday Night Football booth, but after his tryout, he was told he was no longer under consideration for the opening, Andrew Marchand of the New York Post reports.

If Favre does indeed want to get into broadcasting, he's likely going to have to hone his craft on a smaller stage.

The network is looking to fill Jon Gruden's spot who left to go back to coaching with the Oakland Raiders for the 2018 Season. ESPN was prepared to offer Manning the same $6.5 million salary as Gruden with possibly even a little room for negotiation, according to sources.

Fox Sports will be able to address that issue by moving some of the most appealing NFC showdowns from Sunday to Thursday, network executives said at a recent presentation for ad buyers (via New York Business Journal).

ESPN has also held auditions for still-active tight ends Jason Witten and Greg Olsen and plans to conduct tryouts with Rex Ryan and Booger McFarland, Marchand reported.

Fellow Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning was reportedly also approached for the lead gig but was not interested and declined.

Favre, who has only called a single college game to our knowledge, won't be that guy. In-house candidates Matt Hasselbeck, Randy Moss and Louis Riddick have been floated for a while, as have NFL Network's Kurt Warner and recently retired offensive lineman Joe Thomas, but the network seems to be casting a wide net.

While not holding open auditions, ESPN appears to be bringing in any and all contenders to work with Joe Tessitore, who is taking over play-by-play duties from Sean McDonough.
