The Washington Redskins entered Tuesday’s free agency signing period with $18.58 million in cap space, according to figures released by the NFL on Tuesday, and committed $9.83 million of that money to sign five players. That leaves the Redskins with $8.75 million in cap space, prior to their one-year deal with tackle Bruce Campbell.

Inside linebacker Perry Riley Jr.’s new three-year deal with the team is worth $12 million and includes $5 million of guaranteed money. His cap hit for 2014 is $3 million.

Wide receiver Andre Roberts’s four-year, $16 million contract came with a $4 million signing bonus and $8 million of guaranteed money. His cap hit for 2014 is $2.25 million.

Guard Shawn Lauvao’s four-year contract is worth $17 million ($5 million guaranteed). His cap hit for this season is $3 million.
