COVER THREE: YAHOO SPORTS' Les Carpenter noted Redskins QB Robert Griffin III on Thursday was answering questions during a news conference "when suddenly" Redskins Senior VP/Communications Tony Wyllie "interrupted the session and pulled Griffin away" because Griffin had an adidas logo on the neckline of his shirt. Griffin was almost fined by the NFL last season for wearing an adidas shirt in a pregame warmup, when NFL rules allow only for gear by league sponsor Nike. But on Thursday, Griffin "tempted a larger fine by 'popping' his Adidas workout shirt when asked if he had put on more muscle in the offseason." He said that the tight-fitting material "made him look stronger." The adidas logo "might have skipped most people’s notice," until Wyllie "pulled him aside and tried to turn the collar inside out" (SPORTS.YAHOO.com, 5/30).
