At least that is according to his father. For those of you who don’t know, Robert Griffin III is the 2011 Heisman Trophy winning quarterback from Baylor University. RG3’s dad warned agents if they try to speak with Griffin directly, they will not be considered at all IF Griffin decides to go pro. That’s a lot of pressure, for Griffin as well as potential agents.

According to TMZ.com

Sources close to RG3’s family tell TMZ, RG2 (aka Dad) has decided any agents who contact his son directly will be out of the running to sign him … and thereby, screwed out of a future multi-million dollar commission.
We’re told Dad wants all the agents to contact him — leaving RG3 alone to focus on next week’s Alamo Bowl, and his Master’s degree. Believe it or not, some reps are playing ball — we’re told Dad’s talking to 5 big-time agents … just in case RG3 goes pro.
As for that big decision — our source says Griffin is stressed about it, and far from a lock to go pro … partially because he doesn’t want to “let people down” at Baylor.

I understand the father’s prospective, but how far is too far?
