Legendary sports broadcaster Al Michaels has shown less enthusiasm this year, leading to speculation that he might be retiring.

A report from the New York Post claims that NBC will not be using Michaels’ services for this year’s playoff games.

Instead, the “Sunday Night Football” team of Mike Tirico and Cris Collinsworth will handle three of the four playoff games, with NBC’s college football “A-Team” covering the remaining game. (Trending: Hunter Biden’s Own Memoir Is Coming Back To Haunt Him In Criminal Trial)

“Your assessment is fair,” Michaels responded when asked if his voice has taken a toll over the years in an earlier broadcast.

However, Michaels seemed surprised by the re-assignments, as he had previously expressed readiness for the NFL playoffs.

Michaels said, “It’s in my deal,” when he was asked about not covering the playoffs.

“Where are you hearing that from? he added.

“That’s part of my deal. Are you hearing something that I’m not hearing?” asked the announcer.

With Michaels not part of the playoffs, he will only announce three Thursday night games this year.
