WASHINGTON - Robert Griffin III proclaimed his arrival in the NFL by stomping all over the Redskins last three divisional opponents and now his cleats and jersey, famous from when a national audience watched them run all over the Giants Monday night, are heading to the Hall of Fame.

RGIII, along will a representative from the Pro Football Hall of Fame, said Wednesday the jersey and cleats worn during his rookie record-setting performance in Monday’s game will live on in Canton.

Griffin’s 72 yards on the ground during the Skins 17-16 stunner over the Giants were enough to set the single-season record for rushing yards by a rookie quarterback, making the shoes on his feet historic.

His cumulative 714 rushing yards on the season trumped the 706-yard rookie record Cam Newton set just one season prior with the Panthers.

The memorabilia was placed into a plastic bag and handled strictly by a man in white gloves.

Griffin still has four games left on the season to extend his rookie rushing mark.
