With Robert Griffin II’s playing career seemingly coming to a close, he’s looking to start the next chapter of his life. If early reports are true, he has the potential to be even greater in his second career than he was in his first.
Robert Griffin III did a test run as a television analyst and Andrew Marchand of The New York Post has reported that multiple networks were “blown away” by his work. In fact, ESPN and FOX are apparently in a bidding war for the former Heisman Trophy winner’s services.
If Griffin III were to join ESPN, he would work as a college football analyst. In addition, he would appear on Get Up with Mike Greenberg and NFL Live.
If FOX were to land the former NFL Rookie of the Year, he would cover college football alongside former University of Texas star Emmanuel Acho. He would also occasionally appear on FOX’s weekday sports shows.
On the outside looking in, CBS could also look to land the former Baltimore Ravens quarterback. With Rich Gannon gone, Griffin III could help call NFL games or assist with weekly SEC coverage.
Griffin III has not publicly indicated which network he hopes to work at.
