Robert Griffin III Was Fined $10,000 for Wearing Adidas During His Post-Game Press Conference on SundayDavid Richard/USA TODAY Sports

Even though he didn't play last Sunday when the Redskins beat the Browns to move one step closer to clinching the NFC East crown, Robert Griffin III continued to make headlines this week. Earlier in the week, we told you about how he set a new record for the most NFL jerseys sold in a single year. And, now, he's making headlines again for a fine that the NFL just handed to him as a result of something that he did on Sunday.

Despite the fact that he's been warned by the league for not wearing Nike products in the past, RGIII rocked an Adidas T-shirt and an Adidas sweat jacket after Sunday's game when he spoke to reporters. And, that's a big no-no in the NFL right now, because they are currently in the first year of a new deal with the Swoosh. So, RG3 just got hit with a $10,000 fine for his actions.

Oh well. Something tells RGIII ain't sweating it. Which Adidas exec is picking up the tab here? Yeah, that's what we thought.
