RGIII explains his black and white cleats and socks


(By John McDonnell / The Washington Post)

The first question during Robert Griffin III’s first training camp press conference of 2014 concerned his footwear. Well, his footwear and sockwear. They were kind of striking, in that one leg — the left — was white and the other — that would be the right — was black.

Anyhow, many of you probably would have asked about DeSean Jackson or Jay Gruden or the rain or the grass, but I would have asked about his footwear. Luckily, someone else beat me to it.

“Oh, the white and black cleats? You know, that’s something I’ve done since college,” Griffin explained. “It’s called the yin and the yang. White and black working together. We’re all brothers. We’re doing it together.”

That was kind of deeper than I would have guessed from his cleat and sock selection, although he might have been joking.

Only 45 days until the season opener, BTW.
