Marcellus Wiley Appeared to Throw up a Gang Sign on Air

Former NFL All-Pro defensive end Marcellus Wiley co-hosts the FS1 original program SPEAK FOR YOURSELF.

Prior to joining FOX Sports, Wiley was co-host of “SportsNation” on ESPN and co-hosted the radio show “Afternoons with Marcellus & Travis” on ESPNLA 710am.

Wiley previously served as an NFL analyst for ESPN, making regular appearances on “NFL Live,” “SportsCenter,” and ESPNEWS, while also contributing to ESPN’s Super Bowl coverage. He was also a host of “Winners Bracket” on ABC. Wiley joined ESPN in 2007, primarily as a studio analyst on ESPN2’s” First Take.”


He also served as a game analyst for ESPN’s Arena Football League telecasts in 2008.

Basically he’s no rookie, but did he make a rookie mistake while on air?

Marcellus while, arguing his point, appeared to throw up a gang sign and declare he’s from the Westside.

See below:

Wiley was born in Compton, that’s a fact.

In a previous profile of the former NFL player on the Undefeated, his‘shoot first, ask questions later’ mentality nearly cost him everything.

“I ask people all the time: Have you ever shot a gun?” he said before biting into his sandwich. “Have you ever seen the flame, the kick, the destruction it does to a person? Have you ever seen it hit flesh? When you go through those steps, I don’t see how anybody in sound mind would want to be a participant in that existence. I’ve seen so many people killed by it, people killed others by it. It has to stop.”

No one doubts Marcellus is the real deal, but that ain’t the move.
