Noticeably absent from Super Bowl XLVII was the NFL’s Rookie of the Year, Robert Griffin III. RG3 was selected second overall in last April’s NFL draft and led the Washington Redskins to the playoffs.
However he did not attend Super Bowl XLVII.
‘I’m a firm believer you don’t go to the Super Bowl unless you’re playing in it,” Griffin said via the Associated Press.
Every NFL player can buy two Super Bowl tickets for face value but it’s unknown just how many players actually end up using the tickets themselves.
