Robert Griffin III may be deep into his broadcasting, but he has not officially retired from the NFL.
Robert Griffin III has not taken an NFL snap in 28 months, but the former first-round quarterback is keeping his options open for a return to the league. Griffin, now a football commentator for ESPN at 33 years old, is still keeping in tip-top shape.
The former NFL quarterback trains every day while juggling his on-air duties as an analyst for ESPN, and that is according to his wife, Grete Griffin. She took to social media and shared a video on Tuesday that showed Griffin running on the side of the road while she drove their vehicle and blasted music.
“Nominated for a Sports Emmy today for his work on TV yet STILL this man trains every single day just in case a team comes calling,” Grete wrote.
“So proud of you baby and never met anyone that works harder for their dreams than you @RGIII.”
Griffin replied to his wife’s message in a quote-tweet, writing: “If she don’t rock with you like this, she ain’t the one.”
The former Heisman Trophy winner last played for the Ravens during the 2020 season. He would be waived by the team in January 2021. Griffin spent three seasons with the organization. He has not taken a snap since.
In 56 career games, Griffin threw for 9,271 yards and 43 touchdowns while rushing for 1,809 yards and 10 scores.
This past Tuesday, Griffin received his first Sports Emmy nomination for Outstanding Personality Emerging On-Air Talent.
Griffin joined ESPN in August 2021 and is a college football and NFL analyst across a number of shows. He would then join “Monday Night Countdown” during the 2022 season, and had a presence at the Super Bowl, College Football Playoff, Pro Bowl, NFL Draft, and Heisman Trophy ceremony.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS?
