Last week, Robert Griffin III announced that he was releasing a book on his experience playing for the Washington Football Team.
Two former members of the team were not too happy with the timing of the book. Lavar Arrington and Fred Smoot talked about the new book on the 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe and had some pretty harsh words for the former top draft pick.
“My career in Washington was spoiled, ruined, and trashed, and I always still continued to speak the truth about what I experienced and what I saw. The amount of hate and the amount of anger that came my way for saying it, it was not safe to say things like what I was saying even though it was the truth back then. So, RGIII, with all due respect, it’s kind of a bitch move to say you’re going to do a tell-all now. Why didn’t you do your tell-all three or four years ago?” said Arrington.
“I just don’t know what RGIII was thinking, at what point does this benefit him? At the end of the day, nobody is waiting for RGIII’s thoughts about Washington. Then he named it ‘Surviving Washington’, was R. Kelly there?? Did I miss something?? Bobby [RGIII] is an irritant, and that’s what Bobby loves to do. Bobby failed at his career in the NFL, let’s be honest, now he wants to bring attention to himself by any means necessary, and that’s why he wrote this book, and I can’t believe somebody is actually going to read it,” said Smoot.
Arrington is now a co-host on Fox Sports Radio’s ‘2 Pros and a Cup of Joe’ alongside Brady Quinn and Jonas Knox.
