Robert Griffin III Graces Cover Of This Week's "Sports Illustrated"




    Beyoncé performs during halftime of the NFL Super Bowl 50 football game in Santa Clara, Calif. Beyoncé is working overtime this weekend: After releasing a new song Saturday and performing at the Super Bowl on Sunday, she's announced a new stadium tour. The Grammy-winning singer announced her 2016 Formation World Tour in a commercial after she performed at the halftime show with Bruno Mars and Coldplay.

    You find yourself on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

    Robert Griffin III will grace the magazine's cover this week (only on the East Coast, though; Peyton Manning is on the West Coast cover).

    This will be RGIII's second "SI" cover; he was on the front of the April 23, 2012 issue.

    According to the Redskins, Griffin is the seventh different Washington quarterback on the cover of Sports Illustrated since 1966.

    Let's just hope RGIII can avoid another jinx.
