Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III has broken off with some more bread as he has signed a big endorsement with Subway, according to Terry Lefton of SportsBusiness Daily. Prior to the NFL Draft, Robert Griffin III has signed product endorsements with some major corporations such as: EA Sports, Adidas, Castrol Oil and most recently Subway.
Robert Griffin III set the bar high early on in his career winning with the Big 12 Conference Offensive Freshman of the Year. Griffin III (popularly known as RG3) went on to win the Heisman Trophy on December 10, 2011, becoming the first player from Baylor University to win the prestigious award.

Subway has notably signed: Blake Griffin, Olympians Michael Phelps, Apolo Anton Ohno and Nastia Liukin, Ryan Howard of the Philadelphia Phillies, New York Yankee CC Sabathia, Michael Strahan of the New York Giants and Alabama running back Mark Ingram.
