NBC Sports has declined ESPN’s initial request to engage in trade talks to acquire Al Michaels, according to sources.

“We look forward to Al completing his contract and calling ‘Sunday Night Football’ games on NBC,” Greg Hughes, an NBC Sports spokesman, told The Post.

ESPN declined comment.

Al Michaels isn’t getting any younger. 

They’re going to have a tough time trying to  find a savvy veteran to pair with Peyton Mannings.
