The pair talked about RGIII’s fondness for pro wrestling and how he wouldn’t wear the traditional “tighty-whities” if he were in WWE. RGIII also said linebackers Ryan Kerrigan and London Fletcher would be the best Redskins players to make in in wrestling.

Washington Redskins: Players To Hug And Slug
