Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is currently viewed as the greatest thing since sliced bread around the National Football League. But that doesn't mean we can't uncover an embarrassing photo from the rookie quarterback's past!Seen here is an 18-year old RGIII during his freshman year on team photo day at Baylor.

He figures to be one of the favorites for Rookie of the Year honors as well. Pic courtesy of Robert Rogers, Baylor University.

WHAT DID HE SAY?
Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III has proved to be a very mature, highly savvy young man that belies his age and experience, both on the field and off of it.

Lethal weapons produce the most impact. Some of the impact is noticeable. Other times the impact is subtle but just as forceful. While the most lethal weapons in the NFL need a little help from their friends, they are pretty darn great all by themselves.
