One of the biggest sticking points for the first eight players taken in the 2012 draft finally has been resolved for one of them. And it favors the player.
Per a source with knowledge of the contract signed by quarterback Robert Griffin III with the Redskins, the deal contains no offset language. Which means that his fully-guaranteed contract is (duh) fully guaranteed. If he’s cut by the Redskins in the next four years and signs with a new team, the Redskins won’t get credit for the money he makes elsewhere.
Previously, the Panthers had given linebacker Luke Kuechly, the ninth overall pick in the draft, a fully-guaranteed deal with no offset language. Kuechly is represented by CAA, and Griffin is represented by CAA.
