There was hardly a more exciting player in the NFL last season than Robert Griffin III, otherwise known as RGIII. The Heisman winner out of Baylor University was electric. He was a rookie sensation with discipline, manners, confidence and mad skills who gave long-suffering Redskins fans a reason to believe again and became a kingpin among an outstanding new class of NFL QBs — at least until his scrambling, take-that-extra-yard style was flattened by a season-ending knee injury.

Well, with rehab going along smoothly and football fans everywhere imploring Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan to better protect this emerging NFL star, RGIII has found himself a nice place to recuperate and settle down with his soon-to-be bride.

Griffin just bought a 5-bedroom home in a gated community in Aldie, VA for $2.5 million.

The home — complete with the one amenity that will make life easier on that pummeled set of legs and body: an elevator — is situated in Creighton Farms in Loudon County, about 30 miles east of D.C. The neighborhood has a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course as its centerpiece, meaning that the high-energy Griffin will have a place to swing his clubs when he’s not strengthening that busted knee or trying to talk Shanahan into letting him go for it on fourth down.

Griffin is getting married to longtime girlfriend Rebecca Liddicoat in July, an event that blew up Twitter a bit when Redskins fans wound up buying wedding gifts for the couple via their Bed, Bath & Beyond registry. But even with a new house and impending marriage, Griffin is said to be keenly focused on being healthy and conditioned enough to start the Redskins’ season opener against NFC East rivals the Philadelphia Eagles on Sept. 9 on the perfect stage: Monday Night Football.
