On Saturday, April 28 Robert Griffin III fans got their first look at RGIII at a press conference at FedEx Field.
"I understand the anticipation and the excitement, but its about more than one person," Griffin said.
"The quarterback gets all the attention, but he also gets all the criticism. Its not necessarily about how you can take all the praise and the attention, it's how you can deal with the criticism."
When asked about the process of wrapping his head around the celebrity that comes with being a professional athlete, Griffin thanked his parents for getting him involved in sports at young age.
