Longtime ESPN studio analyst Tom Jackson will likely not return to the network for the upcoming football season, according to the New York Daily News

Jackson, who has worked for ESPN for 28 years, is reportedly still weighing his options, but there are long odds that he will be back with ESPN’s “Sunday NFL Countdown.”

ESPN is currently changing its lineup of analysts for its football programing. Mike Ditka, Chris Carter and Keyshawn Johnson have been let go, with Randy Moss, Matt Hasselbeck and Charles Woodson being hired to replace them.

ESPN has also signed Trent Dilfer to a new contract and will have him work on “Sunday NFL Countdown,” along with his past role with the Monday show. 

Chris Berman, who joined ESPN in 1979, will reportedly retire after the 2016 season.
