NFL Star Robert Griffin III Told Not To Wear Jesus T-Shirt

NFL Star Robert Griffin III Told Not To Wear Jesus T-ShirtWashington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III recently spoke at a press conference after dislocating his ankle in last Sunday’s game. But getting hurt on the field wasn’t all that fans noticed. Griffin’s Jesus T-shirt was put on backwards. This left fans and media wondering why it was reversed.

After being carted off the field in the Redskins vs. Jaguars game Griffin was seen walking into the press conference with a Not of this World T-shirt that read “Know Jesus, Know Peace, No Jesus, No Peace,” shortly after before addressing the reporters his shirt was turned inside out.

An upbeat Griffin however still managed to include God with his answers to the reporters. “You never wanna get hurt you want to be out there and be available for your team mates,” he told one reporter, “It was just an unfortunate situation because it wasn’t on a hit or anything it’s just something that happened, but in moments like these you just have to keep the faith and stay with it and believe that everything happens for a reason and God has a plan.”

It appears that wearing any brand other than Nike is against league rules, since the NFL has a contract with the company. However there didn’t appear to be any visible logo on the shirt only words. It’s unclear if this would have violated league rules but according to the Washington Post, Griffin has been fined in the past for violating the NFL’s league apparel rules.

Although the athlete has been limited in his apparel he has never shied away from talking about his faith. His NFL career has broadened his platform to spread the message. His Twitter feed always has a boost of encouragement and scriptures on it.
