Robert Griffin III, Pierre Garcon and Ryan Kerrigan were among the guests at the White House’s Easter Egg Roll today, though Griffin, who sported a No. 10 Redskins jersey, athletic shorts and cleats, looked more like he was headed to training camp.

In a photo posted to Instagram, Garcon suggested that the QB “might be the first guy to wear cleats in the White House.” Perhaps he was planning to run routes with President Obama after the roll.

Is this look better or worse than the Northwestern women’s lacrosse team, who caused a bit of a stir when they wore flip-flops for a meet-and-greet with the president in 2005?

Griffin also posed for photos with creepy-looking mascots, Jared, Gio Gonzalez and Dr. Oz.

Matt Williams was also there.
