Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III isn't the only NFL player getting married this offseason. Wedding bells are also in the air for 49ers defensive back Nnamdi Asomugha. Actually, they've already sounded. 

Asomugha married actress Kerry Washington on June 24 in a secret ceremony held in Blaine County, Idaho, according to Eonline.com

If you're not familiar with Washington or her work, just pick up an August 2013 issue of Vanity Fair -- she's on the cover. 

The 36-year-old actress has shot to fame recently playing Olivia Pope on ABC's Scandal. Washington also played Jamie Foxx's wife in Django Unchained and appeared in the two most recent Fantastic Four movies. 

According to E!, the two had been dating since last summer. 

Since no one can spell Asomugha -- at least almost no one on the 49ers' roster -- it's a safe bet that Washington will be keeping her last name. 

Asomugha signed with San Francisco in April after spending the past two seasons with the Eagles. Before that, the 10-year veteran spent eight seasons with the Raiders.
