The brand of Robert Griffin III joins Lionel Messi in getting its own logo.

Washington Redskins QB, RGIII, is one of many people sponsored by clothing manufacturer Adidas.

The logo, unveiled on Instagram by Griffin on Sunday night, brings him in line with other Adidas superstar endorsements including Barcelona striker Lionel Messi, Chicago Bull's Derrick Rose and Houston Rockets Dwight Howard.

Adidas will produce merchandise and exploit trademarks for use with their brand now with the RGIII logo.

Signature cleats have already been released and there are plans for a lot more branded apparel, including using his Heisman Trophy winners speech which is currently being trademarked by Griffin's parent company.

Adidas is looking to work with RGIII with bringing his personality into the brand, rather than just an endorsement deal.

Griffin is about to enter his third NFL season this year after being drafted by the Washington Redskins in the first round of the 2012 draft following his winning the Heisman trophy at Baylor.

He's since become one of the most popular and promising NFL QB's with his athleticism and explosive plays.
