Subway has continued its unique tradition of crafting statues of the top NFL draft prospects out of meat. God, I love America. Here’s a giant likeness of Robert Griffin III made out of 30 pounds of the sandwich chain’s finest smokehouse barbecue chicken.
Subway has previously concocted Ndamukong Suh out of pepperoni and Mark Ingram out of chicken salad. The statue was unveiled in Midtown Manhattan, where, barring an act of God, Griffin will be selected second overall by the Washington Redskins Thursday night.
Earlier this week, Griffin inked a deal to become a spokesman for the footlong factory, joining Michael Strahan, Justin Tuck, Blake Griffin, and Michael Phelps. He’s eating fresh all the way to the bank.
