Two more recently retired players are expected to join the crowded studio Amazon is putting together for Thursday Night Football.

Aqib Talib and Andrew Whitworth are expected to be part of the Prime Video studio team, according to Ryan Glasspiegel of the New York Post.

Talib retired two years ago and has spent some time calling games in the Fox broadcast booth. Whitworth retired this offseason after winning the Super Bowl with the Rams.

Amazon has recently announced that Charissa Thompson will serve as host of the studio show. Other former players expected to be part of the studio include Tony Gonzalez, Richard Sherman, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Marshawn Lynch.

    No one will be able to get a word in with sherman and lynch in the studio.

    Marshawn is notorious for not saying anything. Sherman has a degree from Stanford which makes him smarter than most people and means that you should listen to him.

  4. I had to listen to Talib for one game last year. Made me want to deafen myself with a Q-tip.

  5. There’s going to be a plethora of voices shouting to be heard. Charissa is going to have her hands full. But she is good. Can’t wait.

  6. Setting themselves up to get additional games by trying all these ex-platers out to see what sticks. Just wait… if this works out, they will be eyeing CBS and FOX to pilfer games from.

  7. The NFL is drunk on itself and everything goes to the highest bidder.
    It will continue to be a perpetual money machine as the competition broadens with the streaming competitors and their mega bucks. Remember when Fox stole the package from cbs in ‘94. This will dwarf that.

  8. Talib? Why? Wasn’t Drew Brees available? As bad as Brees was he was 1000x better than Talib.

  9. Everytime I hear Talib speak I instinctively check to make sure I still have my wallet.
