The top of the 3rd round has it's equivalent squabble:

Why Are There so Many 3rd-Round NFL Draft Picks That Are Still Unsigned? | Bleacher Report

and

Numerous NFL picks drafted in third round and later not cashing in with max deals - Yahoo! Sports

Again it seems like a bit of change that the agents are fighting tooth and nail for.

I assume that once the penalties for holding out kick in these type disputes will be quickly put to rest.

That is a sticking point worth fighting for. Their wheat bread is fantastic.

Don't bring back the painful memories of my first job. And it's actually pumpernickel.

Re: Redskins rookie signing thread

What's baffling to me is why is it taking so long sign Josh LeRibeus. He was a third round draft pick. If Griffin's contract situation is close to him signing, then what about LeRibeus?

Try reading back just a few posts.

Re: Redskins rookie signing thread

Will be interesting to see what if anything the Bucs do with Mark Barron (#7 pick). Their rookies are permitted to report tomorrow. After that, we're looking at the Browns/Trent Richardson, whose rookies report July 24. Colts rookies report the next day, July 25. In my opinion, that's the day the offset-language chips fall where they may (and just in time for Redskins camp).

It would of course be ideal to have RGIII in there now, but the Redskins FO has to have seen this coming - especially after they set such an early date for rookies to report as compared to the Colts.

The Colts don't open camp until July 28.
They gain nothing by signing Luck before the 28th and also get to put the teams waiting on them at a competitive disadvantage.

(2) The specualtion is the contract hinges on offset language within the contract.
Especially in our case it makes no sense to haggle over such contract language.
We gave up alot to get Griffin everyone knows he's our guy.
If we end up cutting Griffin a few million is the least of our problems.
And the Panthers (who also have an early camp) already signed their 9th pick without the offset language.

(3) We cannot/must not wait on Luck.
Its up to the FO to get this deal done, asap.
They need to think for themselves and set their own precedent.
If they wait on Luck, Griff might not be at camp til the 28/29.
great post, i completely agree. it's up to our front office to get this done. i would hate nothing more than for griff to be on the sidelines next thursday, should be done by now, has to be done by then.

Re: Redskins rookie signing thread

What sucks is we are waiting on the Colts.

Re: Redskins rookie signing thread

I guess there is no update on RGIII signing status as of now? I sure hope we are not waiting on the Colts to sign Luck and then fight over some stupid language that probably will not even come into question during the contract. Don't we know what his max is? Give him the deal and do what ever it takes to get him in.

Re: Redskins rookie signing thread

Griffin is already going to match Von Miller's deal last year and he's slated to get a larger signing bonus than what Miller got. But none of the first 8 draft picks have signed yet. If Griffin is waiting for Luck, hopefully he won't have to wait long.
