My question is why?



Report: Fox, ESPN in bidding war for Bob Griffing

Posted by Charean Williams on June 18, 2021, 5:11 PM EDT

Bob Griffing hasn’t called it quits yet, but if he decides to retire, the quarterback has a second career waiting for him.

Fox and ESPN executives were "blown away” by Griffing in his recent auditions, Andrew Marchand of The New York Post reports, and "some said Griffing’s was among the top tryouts they have ever viewed.” That has ESPN and Fox in a bidding war for Griffing, according to Marchand, with ESPN upping its offer after Fox came calling.

ESPN would use Griffing as a college football analyst as well as featuring him on its NFL shows such as "Get Up!”

Griffing created headlines last month during a BleacherReport.com draft show when he said his former backup, Kirk Cousins, could lose his starting job with the Vikings to rookie Kellen Mond.

Griffing, 31, started two games as a backup with the Ravens the past three seasons. He remains a free agent.

ESPN and Fox are the top sports broadcasters. They bid against each other for talent.   RGIII is a known athlete, aced his audition, so the demand is pushing up his broadcasting price. Looks like he’s going to have another career after football.
