The Washington Redskins signed third-round draft pick Josh LeRibeus Wednesday, the team announced. The guard signed a four-year contract under the terms of the sport’s rookie pay system.

With the signing of quarterback Robert Griffin III, earlier Wednesday, Washington has all its rookies under contract.

The Redskins did not reveal the financial terms of the deal but LeRibeus’s contract is probably worth about $3 million, based on a comparison with contracts awarded to 2011 draft picks.

LeRibeus, like Griffin, missed two days of rookie conditioning workouts and classroom work this week at Redskins Park, but his deal was completed in time for the opening of training camp July 26.

LeRibeus was taken out of SMU with the 71st overall selection in April’s NFL draft.

Redskins veterans report to training camp next Wednesday and the team’s first practice of camp is scheduled for the following day.
