    Default Colts sign Robert Griffin. No joke.

    http://espn.go.com/blog/afcsouth/pos...k-with-griffin

    The Colts made a practice squad addition Wednesday that left many people doing a double take.

    Robert Griffin III was drafted one spot behind Andrew Luck in April and the two are battling for NFL offensive rookie of the year.

    Indianapolis now had a different Robert Griffin on its roster: Guard Robert Griffin, who actually blocked for RG III at Baylor.

    From the Colts, info on their Robert Griffin, not the Heisman Trophy winner from Baylor who's the Redskins quarterback:

    "Griffin, 6-6, 330 pounds, was originally selected by the New York Jets in the sixth round (203rd overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft out of Baylor and was waived on August 31.

    Griffin was a two-year starter at Baylor, appearing in 26 games (22 starts). He transferred to Baylor from Navarro College (Corsicana, Texas) where he helped Navarro to an 11-1 record and No. 3 national ranking as a sophomore in 2009."
    Don Banks of SI.com wrote about Baylor's other Robert Griffin ahead of the draft.

    The Jets drafted him in the 6th round because they thought they were getting a backup for Tebow. Man, were they disappointed.

    That's funny!

    Additionally, both Robert Griffins attended Baylor so I guess calling one "The Third" was appropriate.

    Yeah, but now it is dumb since there is no other Robert Griffin on the Skins.

    I think we all did.

    The whole last name with II or III or whatever is just a pet peeve of mine because grammatically the III is a modifier to his first name, not his last.

    I get it's become part of his identity, I just don't really care for it.

    I do have some hopes that the Colts Robert Griffin could provide some nice depth at OG in the future tho.
