Robert Griffin III, the Washington Redskins quarterback better known as RG3, has unveiled his new personal logo but the design is drawing mixed reactions from Twitter users.

Presumably part of his new ad campaign with Adidas, RG3's new logo is Superman-esque in style, with the "R" being used to make up the "G." The former Heisman winner, who was drafted second overall in the 2012 NFL draft, first unveiled the logo Sunday on Instagram.

"This wouldn’t be possible without the love and support of my family, friends and fans growing up," Griffin captioned the photo. "This is for us and represents all of the work the people around me put in to help me succeed in life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."

Reactions to RG3's new logo were a bit of a mixed bag on Twitter.



















Many on Twitter see RG3's new logo as just another instance of the quarterback's perceived ego that was called out back in January in a Washington Post article.

"The [Redskins'] next head coach will have to cope not just with owner-supremo Daniel Snyder's interference, but with the added complication of a 23-year-old boy emperor who believes he can dictate everything from the play-calling to what’s served at training table," the Post's Sally Jenkins wrote. "You don't like eggs? Take it up with Robert Griffin III."

"Once, Griffin was an immensely likable, unpretentious kid who was wide open to collaboration. But according to insiders, Griffin’s public campaign to have the offense altered for him was just the tip of his egotism in his second year," she continued. "Behind closed doors, Griffin had fierce finger-pointing tensions with his wide receivers, and he bragged to teammates that he could procure favors from the owner and influence the franchise's direction."
