• Robert Griffin III: SI Cover King

    Robert Griffin III is coming to a Sports Illustrated cover near you. The issue is a four cover, regional series that features Kaepernick, Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Russell Wilson. The Kaepernick cover issue features a story in which SI writer Austin Murphy details why the current 49ers’ quarterback is the new Steve Young.

Since the first edition in 1954 featuring Eddie Matthews of the Milwaukee Braves, athletes from across the country, and the sports spectrum, have graced the cover.
