Peter King breaks down the two hours that followed Griff being drafted:

Quote:
The roster of Griffin's interviews:
1. NFL Network.
2. ESPN.
3. The NFL's in-house interview at Radio City, heard only by fans at the draft.
4. SiriusXM NFL Radio
5. FOX Sports Radio
6. The BBC.
7. A Waco, Texas, radio station.
8. ESPN radio.
9. Redskins media conference call back to club headquarters in Ashburn, Va.
10. Redskins Nation TV.
11. Washington-area media at the draft.
12. A radio interview with Eddie George.
13. Press conference with national media at the draft.
14. Wounded Warriors on site at the draft.
15. Four brief one-on-one interviews with Washington-area media.
16. Me.
17. Nippon TV (Griffin was born in Japan, where his parents were stationed in the military. "I just want to say to all the fans -- I take pride in where I came from, Japan."
This was my favorite scene backstage at the draft. Redskins PR czar Tony Wyllie was taking Griffin from one interview to the next, and trying to make sure everyone got a little piece of him, and Nippon TV was on its fourth question when Wyllie said urgently but quietly: "Hey Japan! You said, 'Two questions!' '')
18. Armed Forces Radio.
19. Pro Football Talk.
20. Another ESPN interview.

Not sure where to put this. Contract info from ESPN980:

Quote:
the NFL released the 'rookie allocation numbers' today to determine rookie contracts. Griffin's first contract under the current CBA will be four years. and worth a total of 21.12 million dollars, with that amount "fully guaranteed."

Griffin III's actual signing bonus according to the sources, will be 13.8 million, again fully guaranteed. For comparison under the current rookie system, last year's # 2 overall pick, Von Miller of the Denver Broncos received 13. 77 million as a signing bonus and had a 21.0 million payment.
