Robert Griffin III’s exposé that promised to detail sexual harassment in the Washington commanders’ organization was reportedly dropped.
In November, RGIII released a video touting an upcoming book titled “Surviving Washington” which he claimed would detail the franchise’s medical mismanagement and sexual harassment. His wife, Grete, later clarified that it would relate to Griffin’s own experience of sexual harassment.
However, now the plans for the book seem to have faded away.
106.7 The Fan in Washington DC reported that the book’s author, Gary Myers, “dropped” the project after Griffin had “doubts”.
Griffin, who played for the franchise from 2012 to 2014, removed the promotional video he had posted praising the book from his Twitter account.
The book is no longer available for pre-order from publisher Simon & Schuster.
RGIII also deleted a tweet in which he pushed back at Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, who questioned why the former quarterback was taking so long to air his grievances.
“Victims of sexual harassment should share their stories when they’re ready and not when you want to,” Griffin wrote in the since-deleted reply. “The book is not about other people’s experiences with sexual harassment in Washington. This is about my experience of sexual harassment in Washington. I hope you will listen.
