Morning Pixels: RGIII on his own marketability

Our own Mike Jones passes along this RGIII tidbit. 

During his once-a-week presser at Redskins Park, Robert Griffin III gets asked a lot of questions. Most of them are football-related, but thanks to the moratorium on asking the rookie questions outside of team-approved interviews, sometimes reporters have to use the weekly opportunity to ask their non-football questions. 

On Wednesday, Comcast SportsNet’s Gary Carter was one such media member, and he asked the rookie if he’s surprised at his own marketability, despite not having “a Madison Avenue look.”

“It could be a changing of the tide,” Griffin responded. “You never know. Of course, I’m not clean-cut, don’t have a fade or bald head. I’ve got hair. That’s just what it is. It shows people that maybe there is a changing of the guard. It’s not always what you look like. It’s what you represent.”

Great answer.

QUOTE OF THE NIGHT

Denard Span on getting the trade phone call from Mike Rizzo: 

“That’s the greatest feeling any ballplayer can have: when you’re wanted. When a team does whatever it has to do to get you, it’s a good feeling. I could hear it in is voice, how excited he was. It gave me some life.”
