NFL To Talk To RG3 About Covering Nike Logo
Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III had a stellar debut on Sunday, but when he hears from the NFL, it won't exactly be a congratulatory message, Darren Rovell of ESPN reports.
Griffin wrote the word "Heart" on the left side of his undershirt before the game on Sunday. Meant to inspire? Perhaps. Meant to conceal? Definitely.
The "H" was drawn extra wide so that the logo of Nike, which has the official apparel deal with the league, was covered. Griffin has a lucrative deal with its competitor adidas.
Griffin won't likely be fined because the shirt was only visible before pregame warmups, but NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told ESPN.com that league officials would talk to him.
"It won't happen again," McCarthy said.
