Robert Griffin III has settled into a cream-colored, four-bedroom stucco house near Leesburg that he
rents with his fiancée,
Rebecca Liddicoat, according to neighbors. Griffin and Liddicoat moved into the River Creek development
over the summer, a few of the neighbors confirmed in phone interviews today. “He’s
very quiet,” said one woman, “but he’s very friendly. He and his fiancée seem to be
homebodies. They are very good neighbors.” She said that after Sunday’s victory over
the New Orleans Saints, some of the neighbors tied balloons to Griffin’s mailbox.
Otherwise, they leave him alone.

“He exercises out front, pulling tires down the road to build up his strength,” said
a man, who seemed in awe of this feat. “He plays football with the children. He’s
very approachable but likes his privacy. His fiancée is a lovely person with a cute
little dog.” When we asked what kind of dog, he laughed, “I don’t know, except that
it’s small.”

A female neighbor said there are 23 houses on the street, which she described as “very
residential, with mostly families.” She said the development was built in 2000.

“It’s a pleasure to have him in the neighborhood. We’re trying to give him his space.”

Griffin rents the house from a former MicroStrategy executive who moved to California.
