The Redskins have their entire 2018 draft class under contract.
The team announced that third-round offensive tackle Geron Christian has signed with the team. The other seven picks signed on May 10, just prior to the team’s rookie minicamp.
Christian was the 74th overall pick in the April draft. While the contracts for most draft picks are slotted, there is some negotiating wiggle room for third-round picks that usually leads to those players being the last to sign. The contract is for four years and worth approximately $3.4 million including a $969,000 signing bonus. The 2018 salary cap charge will be about $722,000.
Christian is expected to develop into the team’s swing tackle. He played a lot of basketball before going to Louisville, so it will take him some time for him to be ready to play.
