We recently heard that the Indianapolis Colts and Andrew Luck are “close” on a deal … but we’ve heard that before, and there are rumors of marketing clauses messing that up. But what of the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s draft, Robert Griffin III? How’s he doing with the Redskins?
Well, according to Griffin, who spoke at the Gatorade High School Player of the Year Awards in Los Angeles on Tuesday, a deal could be done by next week, when Washington’s training camp begins. At least that’s what he hopes.
“I’ll be in D.C. on Thursday. I will be there this Thursday, and hopefully by the 16th, I’ll be signed and ready to go,” Griffin said, per Mike Jones of the Washington Post. “I have no objections — I’m not trying to hold out or make it seem like it’s not a big deal. It’s just [that] I’m not concerned about it, because I’m sure they’ll make it happen.”
According to Griffin, he said there have been plenty of talks between his agent, Ben Dogra, and the Redskins on a new contract and he thinks “it’s gonna get done.”
“I talked to my agent the other day, and he said they had been talking last week then took a break over the weekend, but from what I’ve heard I think it’s gonna get done,” Griffin said. “I think my agent and the Redskins both know it’s paramount for me to be in camp on time, and I think they’re going to work towards that.”
