Robert Griffin III has reacted to ESPN replacing him with Jason Kelce.

The network announced Kelce’s appointment on Tuesday afternoon. The former Philadelphia Eagles star will join the ‘Monday Night Countdown cast and make halftime appearances during ‘Monday Night Football.’

Meanwhile, RGIII is out.

The 34-year-old hasn’t been fired by ESPN. He will call games and perform other studio tasks next season, but this new development has to sting.

His former Baltimore Ravens teammate, Pat Ricard, wondered, “Why not both?!” after catching the update on social media.

Griffin simply replied, “Love ya brother.”

“I at least hope RG3  will still be doing college football with Bob,” a fan said. “This still sucks, though.”

“Did you dirty man,” wrote another.

“That stinks enjoyed watching you,” another commented.

Robert Griffin III Is The Latest On-Air Talent To Experience The Cut-Throat Side Of ESPN

Robert Griffin III had been part of ESPN’s Monday night coverage for two years, but ‘MNF’ has undergone a major shakeup following the firings of Steve Young and Suzy Kolber.

As for Kelce, the seven-time Pro Bowler will be part of ESPN’s Super Bowl coverage and will have an opportunity to land even more gigs at the network as The worldwide Leader in Sports notes that “further opportunities will be explored.”

“Turns out, it was a short retirement!” he said in a statement. “I’m excited to join ESPN, and particularly the Monday Night Countdown team. ESPN was a consistent presence in our household growing up and the network helped shape who I am and my love of all sports.”

Kelce will continue running his ‘New Heights’ podcast with his brother, Travis Kelce.

Hopefully, RGIII will also be allowed to explore more opportunities at the network.
