The jersey and cleats worn Monday night by Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III are headed to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Griffin set the NFL’s single-season rushing record for a rookie quarterback during the Redskins’ 17-16 triumph over the New York Giants.

“Everyone wants to be in the Hall of Fame,” Griffin said.

A Hall of Fame representative made the announcement during Griffin’s weekly news conference at Redskins Park.
