Robert Griffin III is already a star in the land of marketing and promotion.

It is yet to be seen if he will be a star on the field. If he can combine the two, you are looking at the next megastar in the NFL.

But that is a big if.

Popularity contests don’t generate touchdowns, but the early reception for rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III suggests the Washington Redskins might have something special on their hands — at least from a marketing perspective.

RG3 owns the league’s top-selling jersey in May, beating out Peyton Manning and Tim Tebow in the process, according to numbers from NFLShop.com, via The Washington Post.

    What are the chances he is actually successful in Washington? They haven’t had a competent QB in forever and an 8-8 record isn’t going to cut it for the RG3 hype machine. I just don’t know if he can succeed in Washington.

    Aw, this was an extremely good post. Taking the time and actual effort to make a
    great article… but what can I say… I hesitate a lot
    and never manage to get anything done.
