Let the floodgates open.
In a deal that should spark more movement among unsigned first-rounders, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III signed his contract this morning, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
PFT has confirmed the deal is for four years, and that it’s worth a total of $21,119,098, which includes a $13,799,344 signing bonus.
The issue of whether the team would be on the hook for future payments if he’s cut and signed by another team seems moot in RG3’s case. If, in four years, he’s played so poorly that he’s on another roster, then owner Dan Snyder has bigger problems than a few dollars that might go toward new socks.
