I'd like to see all the old QBs just retire. Kind of sick of all of them, but especially Brady. (Brees, Rivers, Big Ben, even Rodgers maybe after a farewell season.)

From that article:
ESPN is reportedly sweetening the pot for its ask by offering to take “Monday Night Football” off of cable and back on the ABC airwaves if it gets flex scheduling in return.
If I'm reading this right, the pot was sweetened by offering to air the ESPN broadcast on ABC instead of ESPN. (ESPN commentators calling the game, etc...) My guess is they'd simulcast it on both channels, but maybe not.

Either way, I also love the idea of putting MNF back on free tv.
