cleat

There’s no doubt that the Washington Redskins’ Robert Griffin III is one of the most buzzed-about young quarterbacks in the NFL since Michael Vick in 2001. The 23-year-old hurler was honored with the 2012 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award, and this season, he’s doing his best to keep that momentum and hype rolling along. After an inspiring return from injury, Robert Griffin III has battled back to remain one of the league's top QBs. Unfortunately, the Washington Redskins have been struggling, and they’re currently at 3-9 in the NFC East after last night's 24-17 loss to the Giants.

Despite the rocky path the Redskins are on, it’s been a valuable learning experience for Robert Griffin III, who continues to improve. RGIII stuck with a custom, stripe-less variation of the adidas Crazyquick Low for the start of the season, and on Veteran's Day, adidas unveiled his official signature cleat, the RGIII. Let's get down to the details, this is Breaking Down RGIII's Stats According to Cleat So Far This Season.
