Lots of athletes get statues built in their honor, though not one you can take a bite out of.

The likeness of Robert Griffin III, made of barbecue chicken, lettuce, tomatoes and chili peppers, was unveiled at a Subway restaurant in Manhattan on Tuesday. It might not be quite the same accolade as going No. 2 overall in the draft to the Washington Redskins, as the Heisman Trophy winner will do Thursday night, but the Baylor quarterback got a kick out of it.

Griffin says he and his college teammates were “big on Subway” and that the statue “is all for fun and cool,” although he wasn’t sure how much it actually resembled him.
