“Could I be the quarterback of the Jets? I could be the quarterback of the Jets.”
That’s just one thought from Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL Pro Bowl quarterback Robert Griffin III in the teaser for his new podcast, RG3 and The Ones. The podcast will offer conversations with guests from across the NFL, promising rare insights into weekly standout performances, career-defining moments, locker room dynamics and the storylines unfolding throughout the season (see above for and example of that last one).

To produce the show, Griffin has teamed up with Wave Sports + Entertainment, the sports storytelling outfit behind the hit digital series New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce and Podcast P with Paul George.
RG3 and The Ones is an original, weekly series that launches Thursday, September 21.
“Every week, there are new stories in sports that deserve to be celebrated, championed, and clarified on a platform that puts athletes and their truth first,” said Griffin in a statement. “Wave Sports + Entertainment makes unfiltered content that overflows with humanity, humor, and realness. Together with Whispering Oaks Productions, we have created a new weekly podcast I can’t wait to bring to sports fans. RG3 and The Ones is for anyone who isn’t interested in the thirty-second sound bites or untrue narratives but wants to dive deeper into the stories that make our favorite athletes our favorite humans. I hope our audience will feel right at home with me—heck, we might even get a cameo from one of my four adorable daughters or a hot take from my record-holding track star wife. Let’s have some fun while celebrating the great stories and superstars in sports.”
Griffin is an analyst for ESPN’s Monday Night Countdown as well as a college football color commentator. He’s also a frequent guest on ESPN studio shows throughout the week.
“Robert, the media personality, has become a household name across the internet, social media, and the big screen, mirroring his meteoric rise on the field as a Heisman Trophy winner, top pick, and NFL star,” said Brian Verne, founder and CEO of Wave Sports + Entertainment (WSE). “He is the perfect person to quarterback this show for us as we look to put up more big wins across the WSE Originals slate.”
WSE is one of the fastest-growing sports media companies, serving more than 117 million engaged followers globally — delivering high-impact and engaging social, audio and visual content with some of the biggest voices in sports. RG3 and The Ones is executive produced by Whispering Oaks Productions.
New episodes of RG3 and The Ones drop every Thursday on YouTube, Spotify, Apple Podcasts and other platforms.
