HTTR to the Family Feud!
Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon and 19 other NFL players are set to appear on two episodes of Celebrity Family Feud at 8 p.m. on Sunday, July 3 on ABC.
Garcon will represent the NFC offense, along with Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, 49ers tackle Joe Staley, Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones, and Cardinals running back David Johnson. They are competing on behalf of the Professional Athletes Foundation, which offers a range of career, health and educational resources to former players.
They'll be playing for the $25,000 prize against the AFC defensive team of Broncos linebacker and reigning Super Bowl MVP Von Miller, Raiders linebacker and Super Bowl XLVIII MVP Malcolm Smith, Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali, Chargers linebacker Melvin Ingram and former Bengals linebacker A.J. Hawk. The AFC linebackers are playing for the Still Strong foundation, an organization founded by former Bengal Devon Still that provides assistance to families whose children are battling cancer.
The other episode will feature the AFC offense, competing for Active Minds, Inc., comprised of Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall, Patriots tackle Marcus Cannon, Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper, Bengals running back Jeremy Hill, and Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. against the NFC defensive team, representing the Got Your 6 Campaign, comprised of Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis, Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril, Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins, and Patriots defensive tackle and former Redskin Terrance Knighton. (Even though Knighton is in the AFC now, he's repping for the NFC, which is clearly a sign that Pot Roast is still a Redskin at heart.)
Garcon is not the first player on the roster to compete on Celebrity Family Feud. Last year, tight end Vernon Davis had a memorable performance on the show.
