Report: Redskins Add Receivers Pierre Garcon, Josh Morgan In Free Agency
Last week, the Washington Redskins swung a deal presumably to draft Robert Griffin III as their next franchise quarterback — now, they’re turning their attention to loading up RG3′s arsenal. The Redskins will sign Josh Morgan and Pierre Garcon, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter, while Eddie Royal could be next.
The Redskins signed Garcon to a whopper of a deal this afternoon, giving him five years and approximately $42.5 million. The former Indianapolis Colt made 70 catches for 947 yards and six touchdowns last season.
Morgan, a former San Francisco 49er, is expected to get a two-year deal in Washington. Morgan made just 15 catches for 220 yards in a 2011 season shortened by injury.
The Redskins don’t have a done deal yet with Royal, who played last season for the Denver Broncos.
