WASHINGTON, D.C. (July 18, 2012)—The Washington Post was reporting Wednesday morning that former Baylor quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III has agreed to a four year contract with the Washington Redskins.
According to the Post, Griffin agreed to the contract deal Tuesday night and should join other rookies at the Redskin’s summer training facility sometime today.
Griffin was selected second overall in the 2012 NFL draft in April.
He led the Baylor Bears to the best football season in years and to a victory in the Alamo Bowl last December.
Griffin was selected as the Heisman Trophy winner this spring, making him the first-ever Baylor University player to win the prestigious award.
Griffin, accounts indicate, has agreed to a four-year contract with an option for a fifth year and the deal is said to be worth $21.
The contract includes a $14 million guaranteed signing bonus.
With Griffin’s signing, the Redskins have only one unsigned rookie left.
The Redskin’s rookie camp began Monday.
