RG3’s jersey, boots headed to Hall of Fame
ASHBURN, Virginia — Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III already has a place in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
On Wednesday, the hall collected the grass- and dirt-stained burgundy jersey and boots worn by Griffin when he set the NFL single-season record for yards rushing by a quarterback in the Redskins’ win over the New York Giants.
Griffin ran five times for 72 yards in the 17-16 victory on Monday, giving him 714 yards on the season and topping the mark of 706 set last year by Cam Newton.
It’s been quite a week for Griffin, whose RG3 nickname was chanted repeatedly when he made an appearance at the Washington Wizards’ upset of the NBA champion Miami Heat on Tuesday.
