Troy Aikman is preparing to accept a deal from ESPN that will see him leave FOX for Monday Night Football. In the process, he will likely receive a salary upwards of the $17.5 million that Tony Romo commands annually from CBS.
One person who reacted immediately to news of Aikman’s impending move was his FOX co-worker, Erin Andrews.

What is interesting about this is the fact that Andrews too is on an expiring deal.
In a recent interview, she revealed that free agency was looming for her as well and that she would love to see a scenario where the whole band could stick together.
“This has been the best career move I’ve ever made in my life and those guys are like my brothers or my best friends,” she said.
Obviously with Aikman now preparing to move on, that is no longer feasible.
With Aikman’s new salary inevitably on its way to becoming public knowledge, many had the same question: what exactly is Andrews’ salary?
According to multiple reports, Andrews currently commands something in the $2 million range. And that is not including her many, many sponsorship deals.
Andrews has been in the news quite a bit in recent weeks. Between her one-word reaction to Tom Brady’s retirement and her admission about the one NFL coach she absolutely loves – she has made headlines for one thing after another.

And that’s to say nothing of her going mega-viral over her gameday outfit as well as her admission to Charissa Thompson about why underwear is her favorite present.
Andrews is a legit hit maker in the NFL news space, and no matter where she ends up on her next deal, her contract will undoubtedly reflect that.
