As reported by the man himself, Redskins first round draft pick Robert Griffin III officially signed his rookie contract this morning:

"@RGIII: Well people....It's Time to go to Work!!!Off the unemployment line and yea HTTR!!!!"

Sources later confirmed that Robert Griffin III was indeed signing his contract to become a member of the Washington Redskins.

As reported by, the deal is over four years with a fifth year option and is worth $21,119,098 over four years. The Redskins will have the option at the beginning of the fifth year to either keep Robert Griffin III or release him.

Now that he has signed his deal, Griffin can head to Redskins Park to begin working out with his fellow teammates. He has missed a couple days, but don't expect that make much of a difference. Griffin is a hard working player that will make up for lost time.

The Redskins need to work on signing third round draft pick Josh LeRibeus. The SMU offensive lineman has yet to be signed to a contract and there is not yet word on when that will happen.
