REDSKINS SIGN CONTRACT WITH ROOKIE QB ROBERT GRIFFIN III
Mon, 23 Jul 2012 07:26 AM EDT

The Washington Redskins signed No. 2 pick Robert Griffin III to a 4-year contract worth $21.12 million and includes a signing bonus of $13.8 million.

Griffin and Carolina Panthers’ linebacker Luke Kuechly, the 9th pick in the 2012 draft, were the lone top-10 picks to sign rookie agreements. Neither of the contracts includes offset language, which is utilized in most contracts and lowers the payment a team owes in the event that player is cut and signs with a new team.

Griffin missed the first 2 days of rookie training camp waiting for his deal situation to be settled. The depth chart at QB needs no such manipulation.

Head coach Mike Shanahan said Griffin is the Redskins’ starter and he anticipates that’ll be the case September 9 when the regular season starts against the New Orleans.

Shanahan, who coached the Broncos to consecutive Super Bowl titles in 1997 and 1998, believes that Robert Griffin III will take Redskins back to the top of the NFL. He made the statement when the Washington Redskins traded three 1st-round draft picks and a second-rounder to St. Louis on March 9 for the inalienable right to move up four spots to take Griffin second overall last month, wasted no time in naming him the Washington’ starter ahead of incumbent Rex Grossman and fellow rookie Kirk Cousins.

“He’s the starter, period,” Shanahan claimed after Griffin and his fellow rookies completed a 3-day minicamp at Redskins Park on May 6. “The reason we gave up what we gave up is he will do some things that I believe no has done.” Scores

Griffin, the 2011 Heisman Trophy winner, fits the mold of the kind of QB Shanahan has had success with. He worked with mobile Hall-Of-Fame QBs John Elway and Steve Young during 14 of his previous 27 NFL seasons.

“It’s difficult to find that guy who can throw the football (so well) and has Olympic-type speed,” Shanahan recounted. “Robert does something that you can’t teach. He will be able to make plays when everything breaks down. The great QBs that I have been around, the great quarterbacks that have won Super Bowls (can do that). I actually believe (Robert) can make any throw. … And with his speed, he will get on the edge and do things that most QBs can’t do. We are going to adjust our program to what he feels comfortable with. We’ll watch him grow.”

Shanahan said that Griffin is growing so comfortable with the offense that coordinator Kyle Shanahan spent 6 hours teaching him before minicamp. Then the Redskins didn’t have a busted play call — and only 1 ball hit the ground — in the 5-day minicamp.

Griffin wasn’t signed but did organize a multi-day throwing session with one or two of the team’s receivers. His abilities in leadership are a strength and even owner Dan Snyder perspectives Griffin as the present and future face of the organization.

1 or 2 teams plan to stay the course with offset language. The Cowboys and owner Jerry Jones have always included the condition in contracts and don’t plan to buckle in negotiations with 6th overall pick Morris Claiborne whether or not that’s the case with other teams.
