Robert Lee Griffin III (born February 12, 1990), nicknamed RG3, is a professional football player who has played quarterback for the Washington Redskins and Cleveland Browns of the NFL. He currently is a free agent without any immediate prospects. Early in the 2016 season, he sustained a shoulder injury which will keep him out for 10 to 12 weeks and could possibly end his season.
He played his college ball at Baylor University, and was the winner of the 2011 Heisman Trophy. The Redskins selected him with the second pick of the 2012 NFL Draft.
For the 2012 season, Griffin set records for highest passer rating by a rookie quarterback (102.4) and highest touchdown to interception ratio (4:1). He was named the Offensive Rookie of the Year. On December 26, he was named to the 2013 Pro Bowl. Due to injuries on his ACL and LCL ligaments in his right knee, he couldn't play and was replaced by Drew Brees
An Army brat, Griffin was born on Okinawa where his parents, Robert Jr. and Jacqueline, both U.S. Army sergeants, were stationed. After moving around, they eventually settled in Copperas Cove, Texas in 1997. Playing for the Copperas Cove High School Bulldawgs, Robert starred in basketball, football, and track. He started at quarterback for two seasons. During his junior season, he passed for 2,001 yards and 25 touchdowns with two interceptions while compiling 876 rushing yards for 8 touchdowns. He received first-team All-District 16-4A honors after the season. As a senior he recorded 1,285 rushing yards, posting 24 touchdowns, and passed for 1,356 yards for 16 touchdowns with seven interceptions. In track, Griffin broke state records for the 110-meter and 300-meter hurdles, running the 110-meter hurdles in 13.55 seconds and the 300-meter hurdles in 35.33 seconds. The 300 hurdles time was 1/100th of a second short of tying the national high school record at the time. In 2007, as a junior, he was rated the No. 1 high school 400-meter intermediate hurdler in the country, and was tied at No. 1 for the 110-meter sprint hurdler in the nation. He also received the Gatorade Texas Boys Track and Field Athlete of the Year award and was named to USA Today's 2007 All-USA Track and Field team.
Ranked the fourth-best dual-threat quarterback in the nation, Griffin was among 2008's top college prospects. He was pursued by Stanford, Tennessee, Kansas, Nebraska, Houston, Tulsa, Illinois, Washington State, and Oregon. Robert initially committed to play for Houston under head coach Art Briles, but when Briles left Houston to take the head coaching position at Baylor, Griffin decided to follow him. In 2011 Griffin led Baylor to a 9-3 record, followed by a 67-56 win over the Washington Huskies in the Alamo Bowl, on his way to winning the Heisman Trophy over second place finisher Andrew Luck.¹
