RG3 will succeed on the gridiron because of his brains and diligence.
Richard Khamir Hurd, a lackluster former Baylor University basketball player, was arrested Friday for allegedly trying to extort money from unsigned Washington Redskinsrookie quarterback Robert Griffin III on June 18.
The 25-year-old Hurd, a bush league wannabe who dressed in Waco as a walk-on from 2004 to 2008, reportedly contacted representatives for the 2011 Heisman Trophy award winner and threatened to release “derogatory information” about Kim Kardashian’s crushunless he was paid a “substantial sum.”
“There’s vultures out there, people looking to climb on top of all your money,” said Griffin, 22, who the Skins nabbed out of Baylor with the second choice in the NFL Draft.
RGIII, a native of Japan who flourished as a three-sport star in basketball, football and track at Copperas Cove High School in Texas, admitted he is still adjusting to life as a celebrity.
“There’s a fine line between guarding yourself and being guarded,” said Griffin, who in the classroom graduated in three-years with a 3.67 GPA in political science and on a field at the NFL Combine in February ran the 40-yard dash in 4.43 seconds. “I think I do a pretty good job of guarding myself, even with this situation. It’s just something unfortunate that happened so I think guys can learn. It’s just something that everyone can learn from and just move on.”
Hurd, a scumbag who was arraigned Monday in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas and released on $25,000 bond in the afternoon, is the epitome of a “vulture.”
RG3 should star on the gridiron for the next decade in “The District” because he has been gifted with blazing speed and an otherworldly arm.
However, possibly even more important than his extraordinary athletic talents, Robert Griffin III is a sound bet to dominate the NFL landscape for years because of his intelligence and willingness to accept “being guarded.”
