ESPN has added analyst and former NFL quarterback Robert Griffin III to their show Monday Night Countdown. He joins the show’s other analysts Steve Young and Booger McFarland along with returning host Suzy Kolber. Monday Night Countdown previews the final game of the week on Monday Night Football and often recaps the games that happened the day before on Sunday. Griffin III will lend his expertise as a recently retired NFL quarterback to the show before the game kicks off each week.

He also rushed the ball 307 times for 1,809 yards and ten touchdowns.

ESPN has acquired several former players as analysts over the past few years and the model has been successful thus far. Robert Griffin III has proved to be an excellent analyst for both college football and the NFL. His addition to Monday Night Countdown will surely make the show better and bring more insight to the show before Monday Night Football kicks off each week. While his playing football career may be over his career with football is far from over. His deal with ESPN can take him down many new paths.
