Re: RGIII signed.
No offset language in contract per twitter chatter. Should help with Luck signing but all teams after that will want to get the offset in.

Robert Griffin III signs with Redskins

The Washington Redskins on Wednesday signed rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III to a four-year contract, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The Redskins signed prized rookie Robert Griffin III to a four-year contract, according to a source.

Griffin confirmed his signing through a tweet, saying, "Well people....It's Time to go to Work!!! Off the unemployment line and oh yea HTTR!!!!"

Griffin's contract is worth $21.1 million and fully guaranteed, a league source told

Thirteen of the 32 first-round draft choices, including top overall pick Andrew Luck, remain unsigned.

Looking for a quarterback to build their franchise around, the Redskins made a bold offseason move, trading three first-round picks and a second-rounder to the St. Louis Rams to move into the No. 2 slot to draft Griffin.

Saying that Griffin has the ability to do things no one else has done in the NFL, coach Mike Shanahan wrapped up a rookie minicamp in May by putting RGIII squarely atop the team's depth chart.

"He's the starter. Period," Shanahan said.

Griffin, one of the most accomplished dual-threat quarterbacks in NCAA history, set or tied 54 school records in just 41 games at Baylor before declaring for the draft.

RG3 was Baylor's career passing leader, completing 800 of 1,192 passes (67 percent) for 10,366 yards with 78 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. His 2,254 yards and 33 TDs rushing are records for a Bears quarterback.
