QB Griffin III Again Misses Redskins Rookie Camp

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- Robert Griffin III remains unsigned as the Washington Redskins open the second day of their five-day rookie camp.

The Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback from Baylor was the second pick in this year's draft. The team's third-round selection, offensive lineman Josh LeRibeus, was also absent again Tuesday.

The two aren't considered holdouts because training camp doesn't officially begin until July 26. Neither can be on the field this week with their fellow newcomers until they have signed their contracts.

The collective bargaining agreement that was ratified by the NFL and the union to end last year's lockout was supposed to make rookie deals easier to complete with a system of slotting that paid players based on their draft position. It worked well for the Redskins for their choices from the fourth through seventh rounds, all of whom were signed by early June.
