The Washington Redskins signed Robert Griffin III to a four-year, fully guaranteed $21.11 million contract that includes a $13 million signing bonus according to news outlets and to the man himself.
A fully guaranteed deal means the contract does not contain offset language believed to be the negotiation hold-up for nine of the year's top 11 Draft picks. With an offset, teams that release a player get a refund of the salary owed to the player equaling that is paid by the new team. Thus, the new salary offsets what the old team owes
The pay agents and GMs to work through this minutia. Sometimes it just takes a little extra time.
Griffin is in the DC area and launches his career as savior of Redskins football when he joins the team for rookie camp this week.
