Redskins Not Messing Around with Free Agency

On the first day of free agency the Redskins are already being very aggressive, despite having half the $$ available in their salary cap because of the uncapped 2010 season and front-loading contracts.
The Redskins have signed WR Josh Morgan, formerly of the 49ers, to a 5 year $12 over the first 2 years ($7.5 million guaranteed and the last 3 can be voided). Morgan’s stats: 131 catches, 9 TDs, 13.5 yard average in 4 years with 49ers. Last October he broke his right leg. Morgan was born in DC.
They have signed WR Pierre Garcon, formerly of the Colts, to another 5 year contract for $42.5 million, $20.5 million guaranteed, including an $11 million signing bonus. Garcon’s stats: 188 catches for 16 TDs, 13.4 yard average in his 4 years with Colts. Last year he had 70 receptions, 6 TDs for 947 yards.
They have also re-signed DE Adam Carriker to a 4 year contract for $20 million.
The Redskins are also talking with Bronco’s WR Eddie Royal. Royal was born in Alexandria, VA.
As for cuts, the Redskins have released S Oshiomogho Atogwe (the only Canadian on the team) and FB Mike Sellers.
