Robert Griffin III plans to expose the Washington Football Team and their owner Daniel Snyder.
The former NFL quarterback took to social media and dropped news that he wrote a book called Surviving Washington and it says it will be exposing the franchise. It’s currently set to release next August:
“Every experience that I’ve ever had has made me a better husband, a better father and a better, player,” Griffen said in the video. “But I’m going to tell you the truth about what happened in the playoff game in 2012 against Seattle. I’m going to detailed the medical mismanagement that I received during my time in Washington. I’m gonna open your eyes to the sexual harassment that permeated the walls of that building. And give you a deep dive into a power struggle between one of the most powerful coaches in all of sports and an owner that many of you want gone. They say, ‘The truth will set you free,’ so here it is, unfiltered.”
Griffin is alluding to some of the biggest controversies surrounding both his career and Washington’s reputation. He tore his ACL and LCL during Washington’s 2012 NFC Wild Card Game against the Seattle Seahawks despite team doctor James Andrews reportedly advising the team not to rush him back from a previous knee injury.
He also referenced the scandal from a 2020 Washington Post report on widespread sexual harassment inside the organization
