Robert Griffin III
Building off his incredible junior year at Baylor University, which culminated in winning the Heisman Trophy, Robert Griffin III went from the #2 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft to the NFL’s Offensive Rookie Of The Year and Pro Bowl selection that same year, helping the Washington Redskins win the NFC East division. But after suffering a devastating knee injury in the playoffs that year, followed by clashes with head coach Mike Shanahan and his successor Jay Gruden, the Washington Redskins eventually demoted and then released Griffin. He had an injury-plagued stint with the Browns in 2016, who also released him at the end of the year.
Griffin is currently back playing football, after a brief stint off the field. Now he backs up Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson. He also got a divorce from his college sweetheart, whom he married after his first year with the Redskins and had a child with, and recently had another child with his current girlfriend, a former Florida State University athlete and Olympic Heptathlete, Grete Šadeiko.
