Rob Parker Will No Longer Appear on ESPN First Take

Rob Parker Will No Longer Appear on ESPN First Take

Rob Parker's 30-day suspension from ESPN is over. But, that's not good news for him. Apparently, his contract with ESPN ran out at the end of 2012. So, in light of the controversial comments he made about Robert Griffin III last month, ESPN has decided not to renew his deal.

"Rob Parker's contract expired at year end," ESPN said in a statement released by their PR department. "Evaluating our needs and his work, including his recent RGIII comments, we decided not to renew."

Good riddance. It clearly would have been weird for ESPN to welcome him back with open arms later this month. So, they probably made the right move here.
