The NFL fined Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III $10,000 for wearing Adidas apparel to a postgame news conference following a win over the Baltimore Ravens on Dec. 9.

The fine was confirmed by an NFL spokesman.

Nike is the league’s official uniform maker.

League officials said they would issue a warning but not a fine to Griffin earlier this season when he covered the Nike logo on his shirt before a game.
