First Look: Robert Griffin III in D.C. (VIDEO)

July 17, 2012

We're only a few weeks ago from intense training camp practices and the NFL's first round of preseason games, which is good news for rookies anxious to prove themselves to the league's vets. Since being selected second overall in the 2012 NFL Draft, Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III has dealt with even more hype than Andrew Luck, the number one pick. How has RGIII responded to the pressure? Simply by making D.C. fans fall in love with him.

During his short time with the Redskins, Griffin has already got used to playing different roles on the team. Sure, he's a rookie, but he's also the franchise QB and attempting to become the team leader. Those multiple roles have as much to do with his attitude and maturity as his 40 time. RGIII will have to continue to wear a lot of hats once the season starts, especially if the Skins don't run hot out of the gate.

Below is a new commercial from adidas, premiering tomorrow, that features Griffin adjusting to different roles around the D.C. area while decked out in adidas gear, including the 7.9-ounce adizero 5-Star Mid.

The passionate fans in and around D.C. are counting on RGIII to settle into his new home and give them a reason to cheer. Will he fulfill their expectations? Let us know what you think on Facebook or Twitter.
