Robert Griffin III has announced that he has a new book coming out titled ‘Surviving Washington.’ According to the former NFL quarterback, the book will walk readers through the dysfunctional franchise that is now the Washington Football Team and formerly the Washington Redskins.
Griffin III, who was drafted second overall by Washington in 2012, explained during his announcement video that he will “open your eyes to the sexual harassment that permeated the walls of that building.”
Investigations into alleged sexual harassment and misconduct involving the organization have taken place. In September of 2020, 15 female former Washington employees and two journalists accused team staffers of harassment and verbal abuse.
Incriminating emails regarding an investigation involving the team’s cheerleaders were also discovered in April of 2021.
While fans initially thought that Griffin III would be exposing the sexual harassment of others, his wife Grete revealed that he’ll be detailing “his own experience with sexual harassment” while in Washington.
Let’s clear up a misconception about “Surviving Washington”. In the book, Robert is not talking about other peoples experiences with sexual harassment in Washington. He is talking about his OWN experience with sexual harassment in Washington.

Just five minutes before Grete shared her tweet, Griffin III quoted a tweet from Pro Football Talk asking why he won’t share the details now.
Sexual harassment victims should share their stories when they are ready not when you want them to. The book is not about other people’s experiences with sexual harassment in Washington. Its about my experience with sexual harassment in Washington. Hopefully you will listen. https://t.co/DCEnhFnaiW

Griffin III clearly wants people to buy his new book and read about his past experiences instead of simply sharing them on social media.
While the teaser video from Griffin III about the book is enticing, and the book very well may be an eye-opener on a lot of fronts, NFL fans were quick to call out the former Heisman Trophy winner on Twitter.
Earlier this season when Washington was dealing with injuries at quarterback, RG3 tweeted ‘Make The Call’ with a video of himself playing for Washington signifying he wanted an opportunity to play for the franchise again.
