Never one to shy away from the spotlight, Robert Griffin III will again grace the cover of Sports Illustrated.

The NFL Preview issue, due out September 2, will feature different regional covers with the headline "The New Kings" describing young quarterbacks Griffin, Andrew Luck, Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick. 

This will mark RG3's third time on the cover of Sports Illustrated, and is fresh on the heels of Griffin's cover of GQ magazine in September.

After the kerfuffle from GQ, which saw Griffin address his quasi-beet with former Skins quarterback Donovan McNabb, this version of SI seems to be focused solely on football. In fact, the magazine cover makes the comparison between RG3 and Hall of Famer John Elway.

Sports Illustrated also takes an in-depth look at the read-option, the offense Griffin, Wilson and Kaepernick are turning from gimmick to staple in the NFL.
