NFL players need to find a way to stay in shape during the offseason, and Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has found something fun to do until offseason workouts begin.

The 2011 Heisman Trophy winner was back at Baylor this week. According to Comcast Sportsnet's Rich Tandler, the quarterback was on campus for a "working vacation."

He was reportedly working with Baylor's strength coach, but he took some time to play some rec basketball:

Redskins fans should feel at ease considering he was not wearing a brace or anything on his knee. However, Washington coaches may not be thrilled with the quarterback playing basketball a year after tearing up his knee. The organization doesn't need its franchise quarterback suffering a similar injury to that of former New York Yankees third baseman Aaron Boone.

Griffin also found time to go rock climbing while on campus:

It looks like he's having a fun time at his alma mater.
