The Washington Redskins quarterback appeared Wednesday at a luncheon honoring Tanya Snyder, wife of Redskins owner Dan Snyder. Tanya Snyder is a breast cancer survivor, and she received the society's Mother of the Year award.

When RG3 stepped forward with a pair of pink cleats he wore in a game last season, the bidding went wild. They sold for $15,000. And then 18 people paid $1,000 each to pose with Griffin for a photo that the quarterback will sign.

Griffin also gave an update on his injured knee, saying ``each day is a better day because (it) feels better and you do more things.''
