RGIII on his way to Canton

...well at least his jersey and cleats from Monday night's game are.

The rookie today gave his game-worn jersey and cleats from Monday night’s game against the New York Giants to a representative from the Hall of Fame, just two days after he broke Cam Newton’s single-season rookie record for rushing yards by a quarterback.

Jason Aikens from the Pro Football Hall of Fame said Griffin III’s jersey and cleats will be on display at the “Pro Football Today Gallery.”

“His jersey will join other Hall of Famers from Redskins past such as Sammy Baugh and Sonny Jurgensen,” Aikens said. “So he’s in really rare company.”

Griffin III said it was “awesome” to know that a part of him will be on display in Canton.

“Everyone wants to be in the Hall of Fame, so we’re in there,” Griffin III said with a laugh. “But I’ve got a long career, preferably, and this is only the first step. It’s an honor to have my jersey and my cleats — when they are very dirty — in the Hall of Fame.”
"Givin'em the Business!"
