OFF THE PRESS: Robert Griffin III, rookie quarterback for the Washington Redskins, is at the center of debate these days after coach Mike Shanahan’s decision to bench “RG3,” as he is known, for the final three weeks of the season.
One of Griffin’s staunchest supporters is former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly, a member of the National Football League Hall of Fame. In fact, Kelly cites RG 111 for his efforts in redefining how the quarterback position is played. “He’s doing it with class and integrity. I hope and pray that his integrity continues and remains strong, as I know firsthand the kind of temptation and compromise that can come with success on an NFL stage,” Kelly writes in the new biography by Ted Kluck, a frequent contributor to ESPN the Magazine.
