The Washington Redskins and Robert Griffin III have yet to seal the deal. Until he does sign his contract, he'll be unable to report to rookie camp or participate in full activities–which start the 26th.
As reported from numerous sources over the weekend, the holdup is largely due to language within the deal, and not money squabbles. The money, of course, is guaranteed by the rookie wage scale. Griffin is roughly looking at a four year, $23 million deal.
Initially, Griffin said that they would get a deal done before the start of rookie camp, however, many around Redskins' Park are not surprised by the delay.
The second overall pick has to know that his presence in camp is paramount. As long as he's there by the time the veterans show up, everything will be fine. If it last beyond that, we've likely missed something. Of course, the Indianapolis Colts don't start camp till the 29th and Robert Giffin III could, selfishly, wait for Andrew Luck to sign to sign first; polishing his details in a similar fashion.
