ASHBURN, Va. >> Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins ended their contract impasse Wednesday when the rookie quarterback signed a four-year, fully guaranteed deal worth $21.1 million. It also includes a club option for a fifth year.

Griffin’s agent, Ben Dogra, told The Associated Press that the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback agreed to terms and will be in Redskins rookie camp on Wednesday.

Griffin, the second overall pick in the draft out of Baylor, announced the news on Twitter, writing, “Well people….It’s Time to go to Work!!! Off the unemployment line and oh yea HTTR!!!”

The latter stands for “Hail To The Redskins,” the team’s fight song.

Griffin will be on the field Wednesday for the third day of a five-day rookie camp. He wasn’t considered a holdout because training camp doesn’t officially begin until July 26.
