Redskins Sign Garcon, Morgan

The Washington Redskins made the first step in improving their receiving corps yesterday by signing former Indianapolis Colt Pierre Garcon and San Francisco 49ers Josh Morgan.

Already trading four picks for the No. 2 overall selection this year with the intent of selecting Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III, the Redskins added two wideouts yesterday to the new look Washington offense.

Garcon was a solid pickup by the Redskins, but I am not positive that he is capable of being a number one receiver. For the five year, $42.5 million the Redskins gave him, he will be expected to be a top option in the Redskins passing attack. I just don't know if Garcon can be what the Redskins expect him to be.

For Morgan, it is a little more interesting. Redskins coach Mike Shanahan views Morgan as a "hidden gem" in Tuesday's signings. He has been a solid player in his three plus seasons in the league, but has yet to have a breakout season. The Redskins are hoping that he can be a special player in Washington.

Needless to say, the Redskins have gotten off to a fast start this offseason.
