Redskins Sign Full 2013 Draft Class

Posted May 24, 2013

The Washington Redskins become just the fifth NFL team to lock up their entire 2013 draft class, and did so in record time under head coach Mike Shanahan.

The Washington Redskins announced the signing of third-round (85th overall) tight end Jordan Reed this morning, officially completing the signing process for the team's 2013 NFL Draft class.

This makes the Redskins only the fifth NFL team to complete their draft class signings this offseason, joining the Detroit Lions, Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints and Chicago Bears.

The conclusion of the draft was less than a month ago.

They are also the first time in the NFC East to sign their draft picks, as the Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants are still locked in negotiations with draft picks.

With all 90 roster players currently under contract, the Redskins head into two more weeks of offseason training activities (OTAs) and Redskins Mini-Camp without the distraction of ongoing negotiations.

By signing all picks by May 24, this marks the fastest that the Redskins have signed all draft picks under general manager Bruce Allen and head coach Mike Shanahan.

In 2010, the Redskins needed until July 30 to secure first-round pick offensive tackle Trent Williams.

Training camp loomed less than one week away.

In 2011, the Redskins were subject to the NFL's lockout of the players and could not negotiate until July 29 when the two sides came to terms.

The Redskins came to terms with all 12 players on July 29.

Last season, the Redskins needed until July 18 to come to terms with the top two picks: quarterback Robert Griffin III and offensive guard Josh LeRibeus.

With unsigned players unable to report to training camp and a new rookie wage scale in place, the Redskins were confident that Griffin III would be under contract well before the start of camp.

In 2013, the Redskins did not have a first round pick and had signed six-of-seven picks by last Friday, May 17.

Training camp at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center will open in 62 days.
