Exclusive: Robert Griffin III Has Broadcasting Options After Network Tryouts

Videos by OutKick

ESPN and Fox Sports have interest in signing Robert Griffin III after he recently completed auditions at both networks, sources tell OutKick.

At either network, Griffin could pop up in various NFL and college football roles, sources note. ESPN and Fox share the Big 12, the conference in which Griffin played college QB.

While Griffin impressed ESPN and Fox, the door is not shut on a return to the NFL. It’s June 10 but an injury to a backup QB could put Griffin’s name back into the mix.

Griffin stepped into broadcasting during the NFL Draft as an analyst on Bleacher Report’s draft night coverage with Adam Lefkoe, Connor Rogers, Aqib Talib, and Reggie Wayne.

  1. This guy has a personal vendetta against Kirk Cousins and he’s been considered a locker room cancer at every NFL stop. Good luck to his commentating partner and I’d definitely watch him do a Vikings game lol..
