Kill the anxiety, cue the fight song, Robert Griffin III has officially signed his first career contract with the Washington Redskins. Griffin will receive $21,119,098 million fully guaranteed in what is a 4-year deal.
The Heisman trophy winner, is ready to work and will now be allowed back into Washington’s facility in Ashburn, Va. With training camp scheduled to kick-off July 26th, it was paramount to have Robert’s deal done in time for his first training camp practice. Rookie reported to the facility on Monday, and 3rd round pick Josh Leribeus and Robert Griffin both were not allowed to attend due to not signing their rookie deals. With Robert’s deal completed, the priority shifts to Leribeus. As of yesterday, both sides were not close to a deal. However, it is expected that Leribeus will be signed before the end of this week. Just in time for camp.
It’s all football now for Robert, as he enters camp as Washington’s starting QB. The franchise is excited, the fans are beyond pumped, now lets have ourselves a season!
