Robert Griffin III held his first press conference of training camp yesterday afternoon. And you just knew that someone would ask him about Osi Umenyiora saying he was going to call him “Bob Griffin” because he hasn’t done anything to be called RGIII. We someone did.
And though it would’ve been great to hear RG3 fire back at Umenyiora, he of course took the high road. Because that’s just what he’s supposed to do.
Griffin took the podium at Redskins Park for his first press conference of training camp and was asked about Umenyiora’s comments. The quarterback chuckled and said, “That’s Osi for you. One of my coaches at Baylor called me Bob. Nobody really calls me Bob, but if that’s what he wants to call me that’s fine. He doesn’t have to call me RGIII at all.”
And that’s the end of that.
