Subway has a long list of "Famous Fans," from Olympian Michael Phelps to NBA player Blake Griffin. Now it can add Heisman Trophy winner and former Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III (RG3) to its roster.
Subway will build an RG3 bust from its new Smokehouse BBQ Chicken, which will be featured at a Subway store in Manhattan. The new partnership also will be featured in print ads in Sports Illustrated and USA Today, as well as in TV spots.
