Redskins reach agreement with WR Pierre Garcon

Less than an hour after the 2012 Free Agency period started, the Redskins have (reportedly) reached an agreement with free agent wide receiver Pierre Garcon, formerly of the Indianapolis Colts.

Pierre Garcon posted on his FB page he’s signing with Washington.

Garcon finished with 70 receptions for 947 yards and six touchdowns in 2011, in a season where the Colts finished with the worst record in the NFL.

He’ll turn 26 years old during the preseason, and is entering his fifth year in the NFL. Garcon is highly talented and a potential “big play” type of receiver, but he’s frustrated fans in Indianapolis with his penchant for dropping passes during his time there.

Updated: it’s being reported that Garcon’s deal is for 5 years, $42.5 million, with approximately $21.5M in guaranteed money.

    That’s a little $teep isn’t it? I guess some receivers are going to be cut. I hope they keep Terrence Austin.

        They’ve added 3 new receivers today if reports are accurate. Somebody has to go. They went crazy on receivers last year as well. What about the o-line?

        I’ve nothing against AUSTIN, but I hear that ROBINSON is better regarded than TERRANCE by the coaches. He was given a new contract yesterday.

        I trhink with three new WR’s, MOSS will havwe to find a new team. They should cut him asap to give him the opportunity to hook up with a good program.
