Robert Griffin III to Replace Randy Moss on ESPN’s Monday Night Countdown

RG3 has been a hit with ESPN for reasons that are probably too deep to get into right now.

With that being said, he is replacing Randy Moss on Monday Night Countdown, according to the New York Post. This isn’t a demotion for Moss, who is well-liked at ESPN, because Moss wanted to spend less time on the road and more time with his family.

Similar to their ESPN NBA Countdown pregame show, the Monday Night Countdown hasn’t quite been the hit that ESPN has wanted it to be but should get a boost from Troy Aikman and Joe Buck now doing the Monday Night Football games that are in addition to the Manningcast that still will be going on.

RG3 has said he wants back in the NFL, but no one wants him even though he says teams have reached out.

Griffin expressed his desire to play after being out of football in 2021, working as an analyst for ESPN, a role in which he currently still holds. But Griffin said ESPN understands his desire to play still exists and if the right opportunity comes along, he’d return to the NFL.

Eisen then asks Griffin if there is an ideal situation for him in the NFL, to which Griffin responded.

“I’ve been reached out to from a plethora of teams,” Griffin said. “You know, going back home to Texas with the Dallas Cowboys, I know a lot of Washington fans don’t want to hear that but that would be a great situation for me. The Atlanta Falcons being there with Marcus Mariota and Desmond Ridder would be a great situation for me. Going to Chicago with Justin Fields to try to help as much as I possibly can in that quarterback room would also be a great situation.”

Did NFL teams reach out to Griffin to gauge his interest in a return, or did some in the NFL reach out to congratulate him on his impressive 40 time?

It is a good bet that Griffin III will be calling more games than playing them in 2022.
