Former Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins reached an agreement on a four-year, $21.1 million, fully guaranteed, contract Wednesday. It also includes a club option for a fifth year.

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.

The Redskins traded their first-round choices in 2012, 2013 and 2014 as well as their second-round pick this year to the St. Louis Rams on March 10 for the right to move up four spots to take Griffin.

Washington has finished last in the NFC East for a fourth straight year with a 5-11 record last season. It was the 16th season in the past 19 which Washington didn’t make the playoffs.
