Robert Griffin III and his fiancée Rebecca Liddicoat (Getty)
In 2011, he became a legend at Baylor by winning the Heisman Trophy. In 2012 he was picked second in the draft, became a commercial success and set the NFL on fire with his dazzling play. There's the knee injury thing, but since he's got the whole superhuman thing going on, he should be fine.
And now comes news that he's getting married.
Griffin's mother Jackie told the Fox affiliate in Washington, D.C. that Robert and fiancée Rebecca Liddicoat are getting married this summer. Hat tip on that piece of news to the Washington Post's D.C. Sports Bog, which also pointed out that if this Bed, Bath and Beyond registry is real, the couple will be married on July 6 (We can hear Griffin telling teammates, "I don't know if we'll have enough time!").
According to the Washington Post, the couple met at Baylor. He proposed to her in 2010 by singing a self-written love song (geez, is there anything the guy can't do?). Three years later, he's one of the hottest stars in the NFL and they'll finally be tying the knot.
Congratulations to the happy couple. We're off to Bed, Bath and Beyond to buy that 7-speed electric hand mixer for their big event.
