On Thursday, Robert Griffin III signed a multiyear deal with ESPN to be a college football and NFL analyst. The free agent QB will be in the booth for college football games on ESPN and ABC and will contribute to ESPN’s studio coverage, including during the College Football Playoff and Super Bowl.
Despite his new deal, he has not shut the door on his career just yet. The deal allows Griffin to seek a playing opportunity with a team if one arises.
“ESPN has been great through this whole process and understanding that I still want to play,” Griffin, an NFL veteran and the 2011 Heisman Trophy winner while playing for Baylor, told The Associated Press. “I still love the game. If that opportunity doesn’t come, I’ll be giving everything I have to ESPN and this process.”
Griffin’s wife, Grete, posted a message for the former quarterback on Instagram.
The former Heisman Trophy winner and second-overall pick by Washington in 2012 was waived by the Ravens in January following three seasons with the organization.
