re: Redskins Add WRs Pierre Garcon and Joshua Morgan

I'm sure this has been mentioned already--but it's interesting and ironic that these three FA WR targets were all in the same 2008 draft as Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly. I guess the Skins are trying to undo the sins of Cerrato in one full swoop...

Dining has a social function. Eddie Royal might be inking the deal in a matter of hours or minutes.

That's an interesting point. Did not know that? I don't know if you can look at it that straight forward and maybe just more of a coincidence. I guess Shanny liked alot of those kids that year.

re: Redskins Add WRs Pierre Garcon and Joshua Morgan

so, we got at least 2 WRs, which is probably enough... still waiting on some cap # confirmations.

i think paul is gone if royal signs, gaffney stays (cause he's making basically $0), moss is 50/50 due to age, but i still believe he can play.

I'd like to see hank/garcon/morgan as our 3 WRs w/ gaffney and whoever as our depth. I don't think we can afford to pay moss or royal/etc big money to be a #4, and hankerson will never get better playing so few snaps a game.

so, eric wright (CB), eric winston (RT - YES!), fletcher, maybe a safety and then a draft full of OL/DBs.


also, i believe you can name multiple guys as post june 1 cuts. the nflpa didn't like how guys missed out on FA money due to somewhat arbitrary accounting rules, so you don't have to wait if you're only ditching a few guys (don't know if it's 1 or 3 or whatever).

Seriously. Morgan and Garçon we're 6th rounders. Would be nice to be the team that drafts these guys for a change instead of the team grasping in free agency.

Would rather get guys that outperform their contracts.

Why?

Jabar Gaffney 68 catches 947 yards 5 tds
Pierre Garcon 70 catches 947 yards 6 tds
^^This is Garcon's most productive season, which btw isn't even as productive as Moss's 2010 season (then one where he didn't break his hand like this year) 93 catches 1,115 yards 6 tds

I would have been just as happy with Early Doucet or Harry Douglas and saved some of that 21 mil/42mil/5
Solid post 30. Garcon is a grass is greener acquisition, but we can still hope "this" is the one time (out of 10+) we're right!!

Garçons guaranteed $$ is less than 21 mil

I know some here think these signings are garbage but think about who our QB is about to be? A young scrambler with a rocket arm that needs his recivers to have speed down field, and garcon has gotten better every year he's a good signing

re: Redskins Add WRs Pierre Garcon and Joshua Morgan

Someone forgot a stat in comparing Moss, Gaffney and Garcon:

Gaffney 31
Moss 32
Garcon 25

Gaffney and Garcon may have had similar years last season, but they are passing each other on different trajectories.

re: Redskins Add WRs Pierre Garcon and Joshua Morgan

On Garcon and Morgan, those contracts a legit. Player-friendly, not team friendly.

Redskins got a pretty good bargain on Carriker though.

Feel like Redskins are going to hold out and try to "win" against Fletcher, where they were okay to give Garcon the eye-popping numbers he was looking for.
