It would be very easy for money to get to the heads of some NFL stars, but Robert Griffin III is determined to give something back.

The Redskins quarterback RGIII has revealed that he is a generous man after he admitted to picking up the bills when he and his team-mates go out for dinner.

Most signal callers take the ultimate responsibility for how their team goes on the field, but this is quite a statement of intent for taking care of things off the field as well.

In an interview conducted by TMZ Sports, the Skins QB opened up over the matter.

"A lot of the guys like to go out for dinner. It's a good chance to bond."

When asked whether he the quarterback or his fellow offensive colleagues pay the bill, RGIII answered, "Usually the QB."

It's only fair that the higher paid players do their bit to help out players on their team who don't benefit from such a significant pay-packet.

Promising young running-back Alfred Morris is one of those players who is on a lower contract compared to the quality he offers.

Morris is currently still on his rookie contract, which in 2013 acquired him a small sum of $480,000 for the season.

New wide-receiver signing DeSean Jackson is sure to offer up his bill paying services. 

Jackson signed a four-year deal with the Redskins during the NFL free agency period after getting released from the Philadelphia Eagles.

This means he will earn $8 million in 2014, and he's sure to be paying for some of the dinner bills with that money. And rightfully so.
